Radio: Fetching album artwork using beets

You will need the requests library to capture album artwork from Fetch Art.

pip install requests  

We need imagemagick to do some image processing. I use Homebrew package manager to install imagemagick. Here's how to install Homebrew on OSX

brew install imagemagick
