According to Wikipedia, NPR credits their rise to fame to "Hype Machine whose structure has been described as an "amalgamation of Pandora Radio and Pitchfork Media". It aggregates the most recently posted songs from a selection of music blogs (about 1,500) and lists them on the website's main page."
