Pandora Radio

One of the benefits of my current temp job is that I get to listen to music while I work. Since my own music would get tiresome after listening to it eight hours a day every single day, I mostly listen to Pandora Radio.

If you are unfamiliar with Pandora, you can read the wikipedia description HERE. The actual link to Pandora HERE.

When you use Pandora, you get 40 hours of free music a month with commercials. If you pay $36 for the year, it turns into Pandora one where you get unlimited music without commercials. Not to mention customizing it and a version for your desktop so you don't have to opening a web browser to listen to it.

How it basically works is that you create a station based on a song or artist and Pandora recommends other songs it thinks you will like based on that. You tell Pandora if you like the song or not with a thumbs up or thumbs down. You can rename the station, put songs on the shelf if you think Pandora is playing it too much, bookmark songs or artists you want to remember and there is even a way to buy the song through iTunes or Amazon. It's a great way to discover new music.

Here are some songs I discovered through Pandora that you might enjoy:

And if you can handle him....he is not PC at all.
