Who else uses this thing? I just discovered its existed and I'm hooked to their dance/trance channel.

I imagine it's like the UK Spotify, but it's browser based and simpler. You basically can create a radio station to your liking based on a song, artist, genre, etc... They also have preset stations and I'm finding I love the trance one. It makes for good background music while I futz around online. Big Grin

Yes, I do use Pandora. I love it, but the ads drive me nuts and the limited number of skips you are given is rather annoying. However, I still use it because I find a lot of music I have never heard.

RE: Pandora
The ads don't bother me, since they're super short and don't come that often

I never even noticed the limited skips, because I just let the trance station do its thing.

Given that it's free (unless you upgrade) I can't complain.

It seems nice for finding good music... not sure how well it would work in midday (when my internet slows way down) though.

I guess I'm impatient with talking voices on the radio and I can never listen through a song I don't like. I drive my friends crazy because I'm constantly skipping songs in the car until I find one I like and I cannot listen to talk radio or commercials. I'm usually in the opposite of a trance.

Nonetheless, you're right, Pandora is free, so what should I expect? Wink And I do find a lot of good tunes that I haven't heard.

Yeah well I imagine it's different when you're looking for sing-a-long music. I enjoy it more for the background beats while I surf the net or draw. Big Grin

I have a Nightwish channel on there that I listen to constantly.

It's how I found bands like Epica, Delain, Krypteria, Sirenia, and others.

It's better than Last.fm for Internet Radio, and as soon as I get the cash I'll upgrade to Pandora One. Big Grin
