OK so who here grew up listening to the radio (like an actual electronic device called a radio)? What was the best part? The tape player, of course! We would sit by that radio for hours, blank tape in the deck, record button pressed, finger on the pause button, ready to capture our favorite anthems. When I tell you all day, I mean all day and night. It was worth it to save our jams. Finally the tune would come on and invariably the DJ would talk at the beginning or end of the song and mess it all up. Ah, good times.

Nowadays we can hear anything we want in an instant – just Google it. You youngins don’t know what it’s like to persevere to the end and endure hardship for your music!  JK.  I love that any time I want to reference a song or listen to something that has been stuck in my head I can do it automatically instead of sitting through a bunch of other songs in the hopes that mine will come on soon.

Even better, I can now design entire stations around what I like; Thumbs Up to hear more, Thumbs Down to skip and hear less.  I’m talking, of course, about Pandora. Is there really anything better? I have to admit that I use the free service because I haven’t found the value in paying the monthly fee. I don’t mind a few commercials here and there. Maybe it’s because I’m from the radio era.

You can tell a lot about a person by the music they listen to (uh-oh). I am going to share my Playlist with you. Some you’ll love, some you’ll laugh at, and some will make you go, “HUH??” That’s the wonderful thing about Pandora. It’s customizable to your likes.
