If you have not discovered Pandora Radio you're missing out big time.  Pandora happen to be based in my neighborhood, potentially clouding my judgment, but what can be wrong with a radio station that plays only WHAT I LIKE?

Pandora's biggest value is that it is based on the Music Genome Project, an effort to classify music by a large set of criteria. Listeners configure their own radio stations and seed them with one or more artists or songs through a ridiculously simple  user interface. Voila. Pandora will play music in line with the seed, dramatically increasing the likelihood that the next song up is one you like. If you don't like it, you tell them and it will be neatly faded into the next song choice while adjusting the configuration of your station. No talk, no commercials (well, ads), no BS -- just pure enjoyment. 

So.... THIS is what I really want to listen to on my Zune, Microsoft. THIS is the next killer app!

I have been listening to my Cool Jazz station morning to night....  check it out!
