OT: A great radio station
This is a really good free radio station to listen to when you just want to chill, do book work and otherwise just futz around in your office.
Pandora is my homepage on my home PC. It's really nice how you can set up your own stations.
Thanks for the link to pandora!!.
I 've already set up stations for my office for the "old people standards" "country western" "jazz and blues" "hard rock" "soul music." "bluegrass" etc.
You're welcome. A friend passed it on to me and I've since passed it on on to several others as well. The whole station format thing is pretty cool.
Pandora and Rhapsody are why XM will never be worth anything. When 250 mile wifi is available (not to mention cell phone internet) you'll be able to carry around playlists a million songs long and you can listen to "radio" from Rhapsody too.
Pick an artist that you like and go down to where it says Play Roger Daltrey radio, it streams lots of artists like the one you chose. I'm pretty sure that portion of Rhapsody is free too. 9Been a subscriber for a year+ now so I'm just guessing that the radio feature is free.
Pandora is great, also!
(how'd that happen?)
Drove down from the coast today, listened to the radio, remembered Radio sucks!
I like pandora MUCH better than Sirius for the home and office. The station selections on Sirius (and probably XM) are much to narrow. I can choose a more eclectic selection and change it as I like. I noticed that on some of the Sirius stations they can get a bit repetitious.
Right now, I'm listening to the Willie and Lobo group. Classical and flaminco guitar. Earlier I was listening to the Delbert McClinton group. Texas roadhouse and beer bar music which strangely included the Dave Matthews band and Jimmy Buffet.
The subscription is cheap for the amount of music available. I'm impressed.
