I am trying to get working in my AppleScript to show me the artist and name of song from the radio station that is playing. the code I have now works for regular music but just not the radio stations. Any ideas?

if (Application("Music").running()) {
  const track = Application("Music").currentTrack;

For the radio the terminal just shows me [object Application]. So not sure what I am missing

  • Welcome to Ask Different! This is JS, not AppleScript, right...? What API are you using for this? Is there a reason this question is better suited for Ask Different than Stack Overflow? – JMY1000 Nov 24 '20 at 9:23

  • This doesn’t look like any AppleScript I know... how are you ruining it? – JMY1000 Nov 24 '20 at 17:23
  • osascript -l javascript ./tunes.js – jrock2004 Nov 25 '20 at 22:38
  • Gotcha, sorry for the confusion. I think the preferred term is JavaScript for Automation (JXA); sorry I didn’t quite get that at first. – JMY1000 Nov 25 '20 at 23:00
