More on Pandora
So, I've been playing more with the Pandora radio client. Earlier today, I decided to try making a few "tuned" stations for particular kinds of music, with the theory being that I could get better selectivity of music by keeping my choices within a genre. So, I've added a few custom stations that I can train with a lot more specifics:

Unwired GrrlFolk - acoustic guitars, banjos, violins, twangy vocals, and lots of strumming (Dar Williams, Be Good Tanyas)
Unwired GrrlRock - electric guitars, feedback, drums, fast songs (Sleater-Kinney, Belly)
Unwired Synthpop - synthesizers, fun for dancing (Freezepop, Depeche Mode)
Unwired Speak - poetry put to music, word jazz, story songs (King Missile, Soul Coughing)

If you want to hear them, just go to http://pandora.com, click on "Shared Stations", and search for my main email address.

One of the annoying limitations of the system is that they limit the number of songs that you can skip in a time period. However, having multiple stations provides a workaround, as you can quit a song by changing to a different channel then changing back. I've been doing that a lot as part of my teaching process.

I love the site!! My problem is that they are not set up yet, for the type of music I pick... Spain, Europe... I wrote to them, I mean they didn't have Radio Tarifa, Madredeus, Maria del Mar Bonet... Serrat!!! They wrote back they are working on it... and I believe them, she gave me a long detailed email on how their process works... and they are getting big and expanding internationally!!!
