* If you haven’t tried out Pandora, you need to give it a whirl.  You can create your own “stations” by identifying a song or performer, then Pandora will offer random tracks which are similar, based on many different criteria from it’s Music Genome.  You can tailor your station by adding more song(s)/performer(s), and by giving “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down” as the track is played.  This is a GREAT way to find music that you might be unaware of but is similar to other music you like.  Give it a try!
