    I'm not sure if this site has been discussed here before or not, but I was recently turned on to it by a friend and absolutely LOVE it! :hyper: Not only is it a great way to just listen to an assortment of tunes that I already know and love, but it has actually turned me on to some great bands and great songs that I would have never heard of otherwise. I highly encourage you to check it out if you haven't done so yet. :)

    just tried it, it's interesting. I've actually gotten some better results while searching jazz stuff than rock.

    I liked it,but, in the terms and conditions to open an account you agree to give your info to EVERYONE! My spam and pop up blockers would go nuts.
    But thanks!

    yeah, i friggin love that site. It introduces me to all sorts of new music. And, unlike most online radios, you can customize the stations and make them play only what you like. Its the greatest thing that's ever happened to online radio, imo.

    Yea, we had a thread ( Like Radio?..Check this out )on it a while back but it never hurts to let more people know about it.

    I have been using it since that thread and use it whenever I'm at my PC and just want to listen to something new.

    Great for working late. But, it does have some weird cross-ref's in it.

    I put in Natalie Cole and a few songs later was on REGIS PHILBIN!!!

    On the upside, I found Action Figure Party and Imogen Heap on Pandora.
     
  8. I love this site. 90% of the time they get it right and find some really good stuff.
     
  9. Yup I'm a fan of that place! I need to visit it more often, I always find good songs there.
     
  10. It's great. Of course, since it only plays music that is similar to what you first put in (which is the idea) there is sometimes not enough variation and it can get boring. But then you have to try something else.
     
  11. yeah, thats the thread i remember...its a cool site

    Nice. I'll have to check it out while I'm at work. From what I read here, it looks to be pretty cool.

  15. This site is great!!!! It nails what you are looking for about 90% of the time. As for the variety, once you create a station, you can keep adding your favorite artists to it and it will expand from them as well. Very cool!
