Ah, I see.  From a bit of searching, it seems scrobbling used to work,
or at least that was the first thing contributed as emms-lastfm.el but
emms-lastfm-client.el later subsumed that?  (not sure)

I don't understand what you mean by "scrobbling is already fully
implemented".  If you're only streaming, why do you have to scrobble?
Won't last.fm automatically scrobble anything it streams to you?

Speaking of streaming, I can't do that either.  :(

I can authenticate fine, I think.  But when I attempt to stream, I get

"let: method call failed with code 4: The Webservices API key supplied
does not have permission to stream / create new radio trials"

I am not a paying member of last.fm.  Do I have to be in order to use
