Like many I really enjoy listening to music and have a fairly eclectic ear. I can’t remember how long ago I first came across Pandora.com but it was too early. I recently re-discovered Pandora, and, wow, what a fabulous music site.
I’ve never really been able to describe my favorite “type” of music, sometimes the label “Americana” is applied, sometimes “singer-songwriter”. Regardless, Pandora knows how to find the songs I like.
It works like this: you create a “radio station” by typing in the name of a song or an artist that you like and Pandora finds music like that. I typed in the name of 2 artists – Greg Brown and Cowboy Junkies – and for the past 3 days I have heard songs from artists I know well and from ones I’ve never heard of. Consistently good to great stuff without any commercials or breaks. Amazing. Check it out.
