When I was in high school and had a disposable income, I was a music freak. I had no qualms about buying a few CD’s a month, just so I could hear new bands. My high school days were also when Napster was at its peak.
But then something happend.
I lost interest in music.
A contributing factor was my brother lost all my CD’s while I was out of the country for an extended period. The one thing I was looking forward to coming home was my cd collection. But it’s gone.
The other factor is I don’t have money to spend on CD’s or go to shows. So, I’ve been out of the loop.
Well, no longer thanks to Pandora.com I love this site! You can start a radio station based on any song or band you like. Currently, I have Nerf Herder, The Rentals, Cake and Juanes on my stations. As the songs play, you can tell the system whether you like that song or not. The system will use that info to fine tune your selection even more to your tastes.
And the best part? It’s free! You just have see an ad on your screen and listen to an occasional one during your music stream. It beats any Clear Channel radio station.
