Pandora: Like a Radio Station, Only Better October 24, 2006

Pandora (http://www.pandora.com) is an interesting service I just discovered. Once you sign up for an account, it asks you to choose a song you like. Put in either a title or an artist, and it will find songs similar to that song or artist’s style and play them like a radio station, only commercial free. Also, you can give a song the thumbs up to play more songs similar to it, or give it the thumbs down to stop playing it and play fewer similar songs. You don’t have to give an opinion on every song. As time passes, in theory, Pandora will get closer and closer to a perfect radio station for you.

You don’t have to limit yourself to one starting song, either. You can create multiple “stations” for yourself, each playing a different kind of music, then shuffle between them though something called “Quick Mix.”

Another nice feature is that you can share your radio stations with other people; just give them the link and they can listen to your station. You can even let people listen to your Quick Mix. It’s a really cool system.
