So farewell then, Last.fm's free streaming radio.

Free web radio and subscription only desktop, phone and API radio. United Kingdom, United States, Germany. Subscription only radio, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil. Everyone else, nothing.

Over the years, I've helped hack away at lastfmproxy http://www.last.fm/group/LastFMProxy which was a bit of python code that turned last.fm radio into a shoutcast stream that could be played in things like winamp. The original author gave up because his country was excluded. Now I can't use it either as it relies on the radio APIs and so is subscription only if it can be made to work at all. 

This all makes me a bit sad, but then CBS can't seem to be able to work out what to do with last.fm even as we're told that the future of music is streaming services like Spotify, RDio, Pandora and Grooveshark.
