Reference Entry
An option in HD radios that allows a listener to save the name of the currently playing song into a connected iPod. When the iPod is later plugged into the computer at home, iTunes builds a playlist of tagged songs so that listeners can purchase them. The HD radio station that played the tagged song receives a royalty from Apple if purchased. See HD radio.
