Things I Love Thursday: Pandora Radio

If you hop in the car with any of us, you will probably find the radio turned to Air 1, but don't be surprised if country, sports talk radio, 80's or something else. But let's face it my kids and Honey have different taste in music than I do.  Depending on the mood and who is with me, but when I'm by myself, driving, sewing, cooking, or mowing, I love my kind of music. I don't have tons of money to buy cd's or download music from iTunes of all the songs that I like to, that is why I LOVE Pandora Radio

Never heard of it?  I actually listen to it on my iPhone and on my computer.  It is like a personalized radio station just for you (or me).  I get to pick what songs I want to listen to and it's FREE!  Here's a little of what they have to say:

We believe that each individual has a unique relationship with music - no one else has tastes exactly like yours. So delivering a great radio experience to each and every listener requires an incredibly broad and deep understanding of music. That's why Pandora is based on the Music Genome Project, the most sophisticated taxonomy of musical information ever collected. It represents over eight years of analysis by our trained team of musicologists, and spans everything from this past Tuesday's new releases all the way back to the Renaissance and Classical music.
Since we started back in 2000, we have been hard at work on the Music Genome Project. It's the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken. Together our team of fifty musician-analysts has been listening to music, one song at a time, studying and collecting literally hundreds of musical details on every song. It takes 20-30 minutes per song to capture all of the little details that give each recording its magical sound - melody, harmony, instrumentation, rhythm, vocals, lyrics ... and more - close to 400 attributes! We continue this work every day to keep up with the incredible flow of great new music coming from studios, stadiums and garages around the country
