Pandora...

Do you listen to music? Do you listen to music on your computer? If you do either, you'll love Pandora! I love music, but I'm lazy about it. I don't buy a lot of CDs or search out new groups. I'm quite content with radio stations because I'm so laid back when it comes to music. I have to tell you though - Pandora.com is amazing! My hubby has been telling me to try them out for months and I've been putting it off. I finally signed up {for free} this morning and have been enjoying it all day! I've listed the simple steps below to get you started - enjoy!

  • Go to Pandora.com
  • Create a login
  • Click on "Create a New Station"
  • Type your favorite artist or song
  • Pandora will play a song by that artist or the song you picked, then it will play a similar song, and another similar song, etc. etc.
  • The really cool thing is that you can give the songs a thumbs up or thumbs down. This tells the database which songs you like and don't like for future picks. Once you give a song a thumbs down, it will never play again. So, you create your own custom radio station.
I started my first station and called it nevershoutnever [listen to him if you get a chance - he's great!] and added Jason Mraz as well. They have played lots of other songs and bands that I've enjoyed [Second Hand Serenade and Jack Johnson to mention a couple]. It's well worth the few minutes that you'll spend setting up the account.

Last, but certainly not least ~ there's a free iPhone app! Just go to the app store on your phone and search for Pandora. Then, once it's downloaded you can just open it, login and enjoy!

ENJOY!
