Information Architecture for Audio: Doing It Right - Boxes and Arrows: The design behind the design
That's radio that is. Some good tips though.

Cheap, Easy Audio Transcription with Mechanical Turk - Waxy.org
Instructions for transcribing audio with Amazon's Mechanical Turk - "First, I split my 35-minute audio file into seven five-minute MP3s. Why? Mechanical Turk workers are all working in parallel, so the more discrete tasks, the faster the job gets done.". Interesting - and you could also do multiple, redundant transcripts of the same audio for better transcription quality.

MIR Research: ISMIR 2008 Demos
Details of several awesome sounding demos around music discovery - "Òscar Celma and Marcelo Nunes presented GeoMuzik which allows drawing a route on a world map. Their system then generates a playlist according to this route. They implemented genre/tag filters. They can also visualize the artists in my Last.fm profile on top of a map". Also work around shared radio listening and another music tagging game.

Cosmovox - a Musical Instrument for the iPhone and iPod touch
Finally, a Theremin-like iPhone app that uses the accelerometer. It even lets you choose your muscial scale.
