How to scrobble songs from a transistor FM radio

Steffen found this cool mix of Ruby, Shazam, packet sniffing and last.fm. He then wrote some proof of concept Python scripts to run locally on a jailbreaked iPhone. We agreed it would be pretty neat to rebuild one of my Now Playing screens into a Last.fm one and use that for the project.

So here’s how it works
