Pandora works ok.
But, like Facebook, it further herds us like a common mass. The danger of herding is ... well... we know about it especially in the US recently. If you are interested, read an article by David Byrne called Echo Chamber.
This is why I think the concept of human and free radio is probably important. I'm going to check it out, so thanks Murph. And Grunt, I will check out the BBC too. I know I have seen a BBC Ray La Montage show/concert that was magic. If there is radio, I want it.


I put Pandora on my desktop at home, but it gets in a rut and "I can tell" it's a computer generated playlist. Somehow. I swear I can.

Earle Bailey on the Deep Tracks at Sirius has a very good grip on Free Form Classic stuff, but my free year will expire soon and I don't like RENTING music. And, like I said, Sirius doesn't have a decent acoustic/Americana/roots station.

I prefer Human Radio !

Tom Petty would agree.

That's the reason I stopped putting up with their erratic billing - plus, the 2 or 3 channels that were almost decent - were way too repetitive.

I was lucky enough to get in on the Sirius lifetime plan when they offered it years ago. I paid a little less than $500 but got a lifetime sub (I can change radios up to three times to keep the lifetime). So far, I've only had to purchase a new dock n' play. This has already paid for itself several times. Love it.

My wife has the only car with Sirius; every time their renew charge shows up on the credit card she calls them and tells them to cancel, and after a few haggles they offer it to her for 6 months cheap That's worked maybe 6-8 times so far. The minute it doesn't it's gone; no way either of us will pay $160 or more to hear the same songs over and over.

If you like traditional Country (the kind where they don't rap) here's a great station that plays traditional and Texas Red Dirt music.
