Here’s a service which definitely gets my “two thumbs up”. Pandora.com is an Internet Radio program that creates music playlists based on an artist of your choosing. The best part is that it’s absolutely Free.
Pandora.com provides endless new music and is extremely easy to use. The first thing you do is to type in the name of any of your favorite artists, songs or classical composers.
Pandora then quickly being playing their music and then continues to play music from similar artists and songs of similar styles. Pandora calls this creating a station. You get a seemingly endless playlist. It’s great!
While the songs are playing, you have the option to rate the song you are listening to, bookmark the song or artist, create a new station, purchase music, and look up more information on the artist or song you are listening to from Pandora’s database.
I started with Kirk Franklin, Pandora then gave me music from Fred Hammond, J. Moss, Donnie McClurkin, and whole bunch of my favorites artists.
After a while I clicked on “create a new station” and entered Chris Tomlin. Pandora did an excellent job of introducing me to Third Day, Caedmon’s Call, Lenny Leblanc, Casting Crowns and several others. There were a few songs I didn’t like so I just skipped to the next song.
Since I created a free account, which took only about 1 minute, I now can log in anytime, from any computer with internet access and select either my fast or slow radio playlist. Pretty cool stuff, don’t you think?
If you have a good stereo at home, connect an FM Transmitter to your computer, tune your radio to it and whoala! you got your your favorite Christian music streaming to your entire house. This will work in your home, office, church and even in your car. For details click here.
Pandora radio also works on the iPhone.
Just start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs or classical composers and Pandora will create a “station” that plays music by this genre and more music like it. Pandora on the iPhone is fully integrated with Pandora on the web. Enjoy all your existing stations – and create new ones right from your iPhone or iPod Touch.
