Occasionally, I listen to the radio online instead of playing songs from my iTunes. This was the first site that was returned when I searched for “online radio” so I gave it a shot.
This site completely stereotyped me…and I loved it!
Here’s how it works: You put in the name of an artist that you like and it will create a radio station for you.
It was as if I was playing my songs from iTunes but with a much greater selection. I put the name “Dave Matthews” into Pandora because I had just seen that many people were accessing my page on the Dave Matthews Cruise (because he has a new cruise scheduled–you should go by the way, it might just be the best trip you’ll ever take!). All of the sudden I was listening to Dave, Pearl Jam, Jack Johnson, and a bunch of other artists I love.
I think I’ll be opening Pandora’s Box everyday. It’s a great, personalized online music site. Check out Pandora when you get a chance.
