    YES.com used to be a very neat universal radio stations playlist website since not many local radio stations provide a decent source of "Last Songs Played", "What Songs Just Played", or "What Was That Song" playlist. YES.com starts developing bugs over time in throughout the late 2000's and early 2010's, but those bugs were minor and doesn't prevent us from being able to see which songs just played on a local station we're trying to look at. Those bugs were fixed by the website over time as well, those bugs didn't last too long.

    YES.com made an improvement in 2010 by introducing the Facebook "Like" button feature for individual songs played by a radio station. YES.com starts developing bugs and more bugs over the late 2000's and early 2010's except the were minimal. I couldn't remember exactly what all the bugs were, but I remember one that develop over late 2009 and early 2010 where the album cover doesn't display for some of the songs, then YES.com fixed the issue and updated the album covers for all of the songs including new songs. Around 2010, there were a problem where YES.com stops logging songs all of a sudden and then gets reset in the next several hours, day, or two days, though it only happens once in a while, but it's a bug that YES.com starts to develop in 2010 that stuck around until the day YES.com shuts down. I happened to figured out that RadioTime (now TuneIn) shares the same server with YES.com for logging songs of local radio stations in Summer 2010. In Spring 2011, I noticed YES.COM along with TuneIn stops logging WEAT in West Palm Beach. Since Fall 2010, I noticed YES.com and RadioTime doesn't log WSHH in Pittsburgh, then later in Spring 2011 YES.com and TuneIn begins to log WSHH in Pittsburgh which is a sign that they stopped logging WSHH somewhere in the past, perhaps somewhere in 2010, then they start logging it again. Starting in 2011, YES.com developed a bug where it doesn't log a song instantly or a few seconds after it starts playing over the air anymore, it takes them a minute or two to log a song after it starts playing over the air. And when it displays the time the song started playing, it was a minute or two off from when the song actually started playing over the air.

    It wasn't until Christmas 2011 when YES.com and TuneIn stops logging Oklahoma City and Spartanburg/Greensville, SC radio stations, and perhaps radio stations in some other cities as well. Then over the first three months of 2012, YES.com and TuneIn stops logging New Orleans radio stations, then Miami radio stations, and many more radio stations from other cities. A couple of people here and I made topics about this on Radio-Info Discussions (now RadioDiscussions) at the time. These people and I also emailed YES.com service and TuneIn service and we all got a similar reply claiming that they're switching servers. Then that one week in March when YES.com and TuneIn stops logging radio stations in all cities in the United States. Then two or three days later, YES.com came back with a new server and all radio stations in all cities starts logging songs again. TuneIn completely relied on the radio stations online streaming for logging songs from there. By then, YES.com were extremely buggy. The new servers were horrible. Artist name were in all caps and song titles were in regular case which is normal, but different then the old YES.com. Though no album covers were displayed at all, just the music symbol for all songs. The song log tab for viewing a certain hour and day in the past 7 days of airplay doesn't log songs correctly anymore, it only logs part of the songs played in that whole entire hour. As time goes on, the song log tab slowly stops working. The chat tab still works fine. By Summer 2012, YES.com stops logging some radio stations all of a sudden and the website had to reset itself to get the website to log all of the radio stations again. The issue which started slowly in Summer 2012 comes back more frequently as time goes on. By Fall 2012, the website resets itself every day to prevent the issue from coming back. Then later in Fall 2012, they start resetting themselves every hour. It just seems like YES.com starts developing more bugs overtime. During the 3rd of February 2013, YES.com shuts down completely and redirects its website to REW.fm which they claim to replace YES.com. Ever since, no progress were made to REW.fm at all, its just a website that just sits there to inform visitors that YES.com shut down and REW.fm will be taking over.

    To conclude everything I just said, YES.com were a pretty neat website before Christmas 2011, it had little bugs here and there that wasn't a big deal. Some of the bugs were developed along the way and some of bugs were fixed along the way. Then by Christmas 2011, they had issues with the servers and then the old server shuts down and they had to switch to a new server which had a lot of bugs which later in turn develop more bugs that never gets fixed and finally YES.com decides to shut down completely in March 2013.

    I wish they either do something with REW.fm and start logging radio stations and providing the playlists to us listeners again or they could bring back YES.com and start logging radio stations and providing the playlists to us listeners again like it did in the past.

    Side note:

    I knew how the YES.com service worked, but when I was MD at KEOM, I was accused of sending them playlists in advance. Not long after that, the GM sent a cease and desist order to YES. He did not want the NCE station associated in any way with YES because the station is owned by a public school district. Of course that didn't work...
