A friend of mine has setup some genre stations on Pandora (a streaming music service).
I listen to Pandora, mostly as a way to listen to classic folk music and my favorite classical genres.
Helen “Helcat” Mosher, has figured out how to share her favorites with others:
“So far I’ve set up Radio Helcat 80s, Radio Helcat Industrial, Radio Helcat Bluegrass and Radio Helcat Modern. And I’m quite sure I’m going to have to set up a Baroque channel, a movie score channel, and .. hmm. Eventually they’re going to have to cut me off.
