    Have you heard it yet?

    I've been listening a lot lately.
    Just type in an artist, band name, or, music style and it starts playing your request and similar artists. The selections are solid and tell you the truth I haven't had one song that was a bad mix to my selection that would have made me want to change a station on a radio.

    I've been using Pandora for a couple of years now and I really like it. I just fire it up and leave it playing in the background while I work in other programs or on other Internet pages. If you find that it starts playing songs that you don't like and you give them the "Thumbs Down'" it really does tweak the selections towards music you will like. It's also worth taking the trouble to give songs that you really like the "Thumbs Up" because it also helps the same way.

    Accepted your friend invite :) oh the www.planetrfx.com I do not currently DJ there my music collection poofed on me a while back but I am rebuilding. Do check out the DJ's there though. They are just average Joe's and Jane's from around the world that like to share their music with others. Grokly likes to do a Dr Deminto type show.

    I have about 25 stations set up on Pandora. I always use the thums up/thumbs down feature, and it does seem to "learn" about your preferences when you do that.


    Anybody want to share their station preferences?? Don't laugh when I list some of mine:

    Cher
    Queen
    Abba
    Pat Benatar
    DooWop
    Danny and the Juniors
    John Fogarty

    etc

    One of the better DJ's on my station is on the air. If you like Dr Demeto give him a listen. http://www.planetrfx.com just select the type of music player you have from the tune in links on the left.

    I used to listen to Dr. Demento on WBCN in Boston back in the late 60s...
