    Has any one else tried pandora internet radio. (pandora.com) You log on and type in an artist you like or a certain type of music and it plays that artist and similar artists forever. I start it when I start sewing and can listen to music I like all day. Check it out. It's great.

    I subscribe to it. It's great. You can put in up to 100 stations. I can listen to a mix of anything from Big Band to Led Zepplin. :)

    Do you do the free one or have you paid for it? I really enjoy the free one but the other one looks like a great deal.

    I tried it several times. Sometimes it's right on, others it doesn't fit my mood with the music it chooses.

    I paid for it. I listen to it mostly when I'm at work. I really, really hate the radio car commercials (idjits screaming why I need to buy their smeggin' brand of car)

    According to their FAQ - it's $36 for the year, "unlimited listening hours every month, no advertising, no daily skip limit, higher audio quality streams, and several other benefits."

    They have to work around/with copyright laws. I put in an Abney Park station, but it tends to play every Goth song on the planet. The ones I like, I put a "thumbs up"; the ones that I don't like, I just put in a "thumbs down".

    I also have a wide range of music that I will listen to. ::shrugs:: I'm just an odd cat when comes to tastes in music.

    I love Pandora radio! I just have the free version. The longer you use it and the more thumbs up and down you do the better it gets. From what I read the thumbs up is even more important to fine tuning the stations than the thumbs down.

    I listen at work. If you are using the free station be sure to pause when you'll be away. You get a limited number of hours a month. Or maybe it's me cuz I had it on so much and wasn't willing to pay for it yet. I love it for holiday music.

    Or if you need a friend while listening to a great array of music, try Delilah
    on the net......I've been listening to her for 20 years. Sometimes I had to stay in the car instead of going into the house because I had to hear the end of her story....and that was after a 75 mile commute

    It sounds good - :( I looked it up and it is restricted to people living in the US.

    One more small plug & then I will quit. I like this website because you can put in an artist & hear their other songs. Now I know why people like the Grateful Dead; I can hear songs other than that Casey Jones thing.

    sorry that it's only for the US...

    My sweetie listens to other stations; I can check to see what they are & it's for a US whosewhasit only.
