Type in the name of an artist or song to get started with your own customizable internet radio station. Although stations start with a single artist or song, users can add additional songs and artists to tune their stations to their liking.
Avid users advocate using at least a few artists/songs for any one station to receive the best results. Click the thumbs up on a song if you like it and want to hear more similar songs, or click the thumbs down on a song you don’t want to hear again.
Additionally, through the menu, Pandora users can buy songs from Amazon.com or itunes, find album/artist information from AllMusic.com or bookmark a song/artist to go on their personal profile. Although Pandora is primarily focused on internet radio, there is a side element of social networking which allows you to connect with fans of similar music. Users can share radio stations and make comments on friends’ profiles. Make sure to visit Pandora’s founders profiles.
Pandora is offered for free with advertisements or for $3 a month without.
