Enjoying Pandora


I've really been enjoying listening to Pandora lately.  It is a net radio service that builds a "station" for you based on your tastes.  You begin by entering a song or an artist you like.  It then plays music it thinks is similar.  You are allowed to give the selections a thumbs up or thumbs down.  Based on your input, it refines the programming.  This is a great way to discover new music.  Today I started with Evanescence and discovered Leaves' Eyes and Nightwish.  Now if someone just would just make a full-featured Pandora module for Media Center...


  1. PingBack from http://msdnrss.thecoderblogs.com/2007/09/25/enjoying-pandora/

  2. But, I got the following message :(
    "We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for most listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative."

  3. I started one here http://dotnet.org.za/colin/archive/2007/03/07/media-center-more-music-v1-and-a-bit.aspx
    but I am also outside the US so it's not much good to me anymore. It's also a real mission to get it to work on vista.
