So I forgot to charge my Ipod last night before going to bed. Today I get to work and had no music to listen to. I did a search on google for a free online radio stations. I found this site called Pandora. You can create your own radio station. It is the coolest thing!! I am sure there are other sites like this out there...but I think I will keep this one around. You start out by typing in one of your favorite artists (or an artist that you want to start listening to), then what it will do is find other artists or songs that are similar or in the same genre as the group or song that you first selected. You then are able to add artists or songs to build up the station. When each song is played you are then able to give a Thumbs UP or a Thumbs DOWN to let the database know if you like the song or not. If you like that particular song then it will continue to find songs or that artist for future playing. You can even BAN a group by just hitting the Thumbs DOWN button two times for any artist. For instance, Brittany Spears "Oops, I did it again" came up, you could hit the DOWN button and have it skip the song. The next time the radio played another Brittany song you could hit the DOWN button again and this will tell the database that you do not want to hear anything else from this particular artist. So I was pretty productive at work today, as I had some good tunes humming along in the background. Helped out alot since I was auditing nightly paperwork that feels like I am grading papers. I do not think I would be a good teacher as I hate to grade papers. Haha. Anyways...check out the site and see if you like it or not. If you don't...it's ok, but at least you gave it a try.
