Anyone here use Pandora?
« on: October 13, 2009, 11:28:17 PM »
I do, and it's the perfect site to get to know new artists by listening to those you like. I've been using it for a month, and I love it. If you have it, what music do you have on your Pandora stations?

Along with a dozen of alternative stations, I have one station solely for TWC music. Artists like Ryan Farish and Chris Geith pop in often.

I don't think there's much need for radio or CD's, or maybe even iTunes when you're addicted to Pandora. I'm considering subscribing to the ad-free premium Pandora.

I tried it for a few months. I wasn't impressed. I had about four stations and even then I often heard the same song several times a day. I also didn't like the fact that I couldn't rate a song or album unless it played. The repetitive playlists wouldn't be as annoying if you were able to skip more than 10 or so songs. I later found last.fm and it's so much better.

I have several songs repeating. I tried to add variety to the stations and giving thumbs down ratings for some, but most of my stations are still repeating themselves.

I do!  A former co-worker of mine turned me onto it!  And, if you've got a Blackberry, there's a Pandora application for your phone!

It's one of the best free music sites I've seen!  And, when I'd get stressed at work, I'm not going to lie -- I'd put on my headphones and listen to a few songs while writing!    <_<

Andrea, that's what I do. I listen to my stations when I'm working.
