    Pandora online radio

    Has anybody else discovered this? I think it's awesome. You choose the music you want to hear and then you can have it mix all the artist together. And it's all free.

    It reminds me of the click radio that came with my gateway back in 01, but way better.

    Give it a try,

    Pandora.com

    If you want I'll give you my stations.

    I have sirrius radio and I can listen to it online, but this blows it away.

    My office workers use it quite a bit since they arn't allowed to store MP3's on their computers here. The bad thing about it, once it 'learns' you, it's hard to get it to update itself to a new selection or add more songs that you'd like to hear. Kinda get repetitive after a while and makes your other coworkers hate you.

    It has an option to take any song off your playlist for a month. If you get tired of a song you can temporarily take it off your playlist.

    The secret it to choose as many artists and mix them together. I have 29 artists picked and it not only plays music from them but others like them.

    Any song you don't like you can click to never play it again.

    I agree with Ozzy. Pandora is incredible. While I've had it for a few years & use it while at the computer - late last year, my wife's employer required her to get a cell phone. Since I've been pushing my wife to become more comfortable with new technology, I got her an iPhone. Pandora is free on it & with a few cables - it's output can be directed into the car radio. We just returned from several days of 8-15 hours of driving. Unlike previous trips with broadcast radio, Pandora made the musical experience extremely enjoyable. During the times when cellphone reception was borderline, we just switched to the mp3 player within. This little program made the driving experience the best that I can recall. It is vastly superior to both satellite & regular 'terrestrial' broadcast radio. Music from stations that I create - which continues to adapt to my preferences - amazing!
    All the best,

    Hey Ozzie! Been meaning to get back to this topic and thank you for the heads up on Pandora. I like listening to the old instrumental surf music (Di ck Dale, Duane Eddy, The Trashmen, etc.) and Pandora lets me pick and choose what I get to listen to. I hate when it tries to slip in rapcrap though. I've created a couple other stations so that when surfin gets old I can switch to Kraftwerk or some other style for a change of pace. Now if I could get it to play stuff like The Scotsman, Hello Mudduh Hello Fadduh, Does Your Chewing Gum Lose It's Flavor, Dead Puppies....

    Yes. It is awesome. Try putting in "Gospel" and "Grateful Dead" and see what it mixes together.
