Pandora Dot Com -- Free On-Line Custom Radio.

I rediscovered Pandora just today after trying it briefly last year. What a hoot!

Already tonight I've customized my own personal Pandora radio station -- named Don Ellis Radio -- by adding several artists & songs that tell Pandora what musical styles to add to the play list.

Log on, search for Don Ellis Radio, & expose your ears to some great tunes.

Then sign up & start your own personalized Pandora radio station(s). Great fun.

Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast.

Alan,

Thanks for recommending Pandora! I just "discovered" it through the recent Sirius Radio thread. How cool!

I am listening to my Brudda Iz station right now!

I am glad I found Pandora from the recent Sirius thread. There was no way I wanted to pay $2.99 per month to listen to XM/Sirius, especially since it had always been included in my subscription, until recently.

I often listen to Rodney Carrington radio on Pandora. I love Pandora, I've been using it for about a year, I guess. I'm amazed how few of my techie friends even know about it.

Whoa! Spoken Audio Commercials On Pandora Dot Com !

Before today, the only commercials on Pandora were conventional linky-visual advertisements (e.g., Click Here For NetFlix, etc.).

Today, I'm listening to Josh Groban Radio or Don Ellis Radio or Jennifer Warnes Radio or some such on Pandora & in between tunes a voice is telling me how outstanding NetFlix is & how great SubWay sandwiches are.

The spoken sales pitches don't come after each & every tune, but they do intrude after every half-dozen numbers, approximately.

The spoken ads are brief, but they're annoying all the same.

Sheesh.
