Pandora and her Music Box~

Today while I was at work I needed to do some filing. I hate, HATE to file, more than anything. When I got to work I pulled out my iPod to listen to and then quickly remembered that it was blank... no music, zip, zilch, nada... no music at all! I went over to one of the fella's that I work with and asked him very politely if he had some music on his iTunes and if so, if he would be so kind to put some on my iPod so I could have something to listen to while I did the most tedious of jobs, ever! Well, be both realized that he didn't have the proper cable and neither did I, so there was no way for my iPod to connect to his computer. bummer.

Before I walked away from his desk, he told me about this website called Pandora. He explained that it is a kind of online radio where you type in either an artist or a song that you really like and it makes a play list surrounding that artist or song. If a song comes on that you don't like you can tell it that you do not like the song and it will continue to refine that search until it creates the perfect play list... just for you! The coolest feature about this is that you don't have to download anything in order for it to run. You input your name, password, birth year and whether you are male or female, other than that there is nothing that is loaded on your computer or anything! That is a big feature for me, anyway.

So, to start out my search I typed in Ella Fitzgerald and it played Ella, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughn, June Christy, Dinah Washington and Nancy Wilson... just to name a few. I played that play list all day! There were some songs that I didn't care for and told it not to play that type of music anymore. I am listening to it right now and it is playing the perfect mix. I think that everyone should check this site out. It is superb Internet radio, if I don't say so myself... Check it out!
