Tired of listening to radio stations that only play some music that you like? Don’t want to risk hearing offensive songs? Pandora Internet Radio may be the answer for you.

Pandora is your own, personalized, free radio station that you can access on the Internet, smartphones, and other devices. A radio station just for you, with only the music you like. Just enter the name of your favorite artist, song, or composer and the service plays that music on your station. You fine-tune the station using a ”thumbs up” or “thumbs down” feature to indicate what you like. The service also suggests music you may like based on analyzing 400 different characteristics of the songs you like against their massive database of 710,000 songs that have been analyzed during the 10-year Music Genome Project. Their collection contains almost a century of popular recordings–new and old, well-known and completely obscure.

If you like a selection, you vote thumbs up and the station will find more songs like that. Thumbs down narrows the song choices to those you like. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you.

The free services allows you to create up to 100 unique “stations” and listen up to 40 hours a month. More costs 99 cents for the rest of the calendar month. They also have an unlimited, ad-free service for $36 a year.

In addition to listening on the Internet and smartphones, you can (or will soon be able to) listen on TVs, Blu-ray players, clock radios, car audio systems, TV set-top boxes, and other devices.
