Just set up a Billie Holliday radio station - freakin' awesome.
I listen to Pandora all the time, but I rarely find new music. Run across a lot of old stuff I've forgotten about though.
oh, yea! My bro introduced me to Pandora a couple of years ago. Pretty cool, no?
Where am I going?......
....and why am I in this handbasket?
Man, I love this old jazz like Billie Holliday, Louis Armstrong, ect... So much stuff I never heard - Pandora is just serving up home run after home run.
It think it was DrPete that turned me on to Pandora. I listen to it just about every day at work.
I listen to Pandora a bunch. Matter of fact, I'm listening right now (love tabbed browsing). Been using it for over a year now. It was originally MSN Radio powered by Pandora (or at least that's how found it).
I haven't really *discovered* any new artists, though. The reason I believe is that the more I say what I like and don't like, the less material that I'm not familiar with pops up.
I get bored with it, I want to hear music from bands I do not know...
Dial up spends more time buffering than playing. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhjjjjjggggggggggggggggg
You lucky dogs...
Funny. I am listening to it right now!

Lullaby Of Foo
Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm
Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon
Needed to charge my iPhone in the car on a trip and didn't
have a separate charger. I unplugged my iPod, plugged in
my phone and was able to run Pandora on the phone through
the car stereo. Who needs satellite radio....?
Check out Pandora Jam too, it lets you record.
I used to love Pandora, but once you spend many, many, many months with the same station, it starts to play the same tunes over and over and over and over. And when I listen to it all day at work, I get the same songs several times in a day. I now have several different stations I created, but I am sort of bored with it. I was a fan of slacker for a while, too, but that got boring, also.
I have discovered many new-to-me artsits, though, but none that I would start listening to more.
Try Earth, Wind & Fire or Tower of Power ...
http://last.fm is also worth a look for those who haven't been there yet. Much the same thing as Pandora, except you use a stand-alone application instead of keeping your browser open. It can also sync up to your media player to watch what you play to make additional recommendations (I have mine synced up to my smart phone). There are some social networking aspects, but they're easy to avoid if you're not into that kind of thing.
