Pandora-Awesome internet radio first; the planet from Avatar second!

Have you heard of Pandora? It's a great way to listen to music you love and music you might love while you spend some time on the internet or in the office. I've tried many other internet radio programs before and been disappointed with tons of ad's and bad music. Pandora has very very limited ad's and they're really short. Pandora also plays amazing music.

How does it work? You type in a band or a song you like and Pandora plays something from that band or a song that's similar to the song you dig. Then if you like it, you can "thumbs up it" or if you hate it you can "thumbs down" it and it won't play it again. It has introduced me to so many bands that I now love, but never knew about before Pandora.

You should really try it for yourself. Go to: and ejoy :) You can listen as a guest or make your own account. I recommend creating an "Iron and Wine" station (nice indie music that's not too in your face) and a "Rodrigo y Gabriella" station (Latin music that is upbeat and will put you in a good mood!) I hope you love this clever music appreciation tool as much as I do!


  1. I use Pandora all of the time, in the office, and sometimes on my phone. The only problem are the commercials. They're getting more frequent. The price of "free" music.

  2. Yes! Pandora in the office is the best-I don't know how I'd get through my day otherwise

  3. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about uploading photos with Picassa - I think it will work! Another great (free) music station is Groove Shark. My 20 year old son introduced me to it (they always know best right?!) and I now use nothing else. You can upload complete albums, all your favorite artists and listen to their radio station - all for free!
