Fave free streaming music service?

I'm looking for a music streaming service that I can play on Android 4.4, Android 4.0, and Win8/web. I've been using Slacker Radio for a few years and kinda getting burned out on it.

I use Microsoft. Their Internet Radio Guide gives me a choice of Internet Radio. Windows Media Guide | Internet Radio

My favorites are stations from Ghana and trance stations.

iHeart Radio looks promising. It was pre-installed on my laptop and it is in both the Windows Store and Google Playstore. Signed up for an account last night and have not seen any adverts or "buy now on __" buttons on the laptop.

Oddly enough, I could find neither Pandora or Slacker in the Windows Store...

I use spotify and I have a bunch of my own stuff on my phone. I have over 40 GB of music.

Well, I don't think that iHeart is gonna work out after all.

I went to close the app on my laptop via the hot corner + left click method (Win8) and the music kept playing. Relaunch it from the Start menu and it didn't recognize what I was already listening to and started a new track on top of the other one (5FDP and LMFAO don't mesh at all), so I switched to my daughter's account on the laptop, then jumped back into mine- it the music started right back up I had to restart the laptop to stop it.

Looks like it's gonna be Pandora. It came pre-installed on the flat screen, I can access it via a browser on the laptop w/o needing an app, and Slacker wouldn't fit on the Android 4.0 device.
