My new DJ

I was reading the Wheaoton Record, our student newspaper here at the college, and there was an article about something called Pandora. Pandora is a music service that lets you enter the name of a band or a song, and then they play a sort of "radio station" of songs that they've identified to be similar to the group/song you picked. You can sign up for an account and save your stations for later, as well. Also, you can tell them which songs that are played you like and dislike, so the station gets personalized to your tastes. So far, it's completely free and doesn't even have ads. They say on the site that the free accounts will start to have ads eventually, so we'll see if it's worth keeping when that happens, but for now, I'm using it to get out of my musical rut.
