Have you heard of Pandora Internet Radio?
If not, head on over to http://www.pandora.com.
It’s fabulous. It’s free. 🙂
It’s part of the Music Genome Project.
You can create up to 100 unique stations and refine them whenever you want.
Start with typing in a song, artist, or composer and the website generates a channel/station from there using a musical family tree of sorts… You can click a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” to tailor the station in the future. You can also “add variety” to improve the station. Lyrics and biographies are included where possible on the screen. Other cool features include “shuffle” in which your stations can mix and match, and you can “share” your station with others. My favorite part of the whole experience is discovering new artists and songs along the way.
In case you’re curious or interested, here is a sampling of my stations:
