Looking for ways to rediscover music from days of yore? Well, Rewind Radio for iPhone could be up your street.

Rewind Radio lets you search for music by decade (going back to the swinging sixties), specific year, or season. So, for example, you can select ‘1978’, ‘the 1970s’ or ‘summer 1978’, and then it will stream random music from that period.

The one caveat is that it only plays 30 seconds of each song for free – unless you have a Rdio subscription, which you can use to access the full service and listen in-app. Alternatively, it links you through to iTunes to make a purchase.
