Find music you like

Post by Richard Ruck » Mon Jan 16, 2006 6:58 pm

Just been sent this link - http://www.pandora.com/

It lets you create your own 'radio' stations. After a while it'll ask you for a few details by way of registration (e-mail address / password etc.) and it will also ask you for a U.S. zip code. If you don't have one (like most of us) just find one somewhere and use it.

Happy listening!

(It did suggest a Melanie C song as being similar to Siouxsie and the Banshees, but I'm sure we can get the thing trained properly!).

Brilliant, Richard! Makes a change from listening to the same old CDs whilst at the computer!

Only problem being that under "terms", it states you have to be a U.S. citizen. So what happens if you say you are, but you`re not ????

You can do the same thing at www.last.fm except it's not restricted to supposedly US-based listeners. If you do join up, please have a listen to nately , a 75% Old Blue indie/rock band.

Thanks,

Yep, we found a fantastic drummer back in March. Unfortunately, our drummer-retention-rate took another hit in October when he went to Australia for three months, but he's back in a couple of weeks and we've got some gigs lined up for February (Thursday 16th at the Dublin Castle in Camden and Friday 24th at Bush Hall in Shepherds Bush).

No problem there - after 5 years they will still be trying to find what state you are in.
