Sharing Time

June 12, 2007

I’m not on the cutting edge of things most of the time. This is no exception. A number of students this past year kept telling me about Pandora Radio. I didn’t know what they meant. But in the last month or so, I’ve become addicted. If you have any interest in music whatsoever, I highly recommend the site. How it works: you simply type in the name of a band or musician you like. That’s it. The site will play continuous music by artists and musicians with a similar sound. So you get to hear songs by your favorite musician as well as songs by artists you’ve never heard of. If you don’t like a song they are playing, you just click a button saying you don’t like it and it immediately quits playing it and moves on to the next song. It’s free, but you do have to register. I don’t think I’ve received any spam from signing up with them, but I’m not positive about that. It’s at least worth a look-see.
