    I suggest two feature I'd like: random play for all radio I have, and add in the text on the album cover also the album name!

    Yeah, the widget for MacOS would be the most amazing idea ever.

    I'd just like to know if you are considering providing higher quality streaming for paying customers? I quite like the concept of this 'station', but I quickly find the distortions/artefacts introduced by the compression irritate me and I have to switch off.

    This is friggin AWSOME! I just decovered pandora a few days ago and already listen to it all day while working and I tell all the people I meet just how great it is. Wonderful! Terrific! Lovely! Of course I too would like the music base to broader, but hey, you're still working on it, right? So keep it up! This is just so much better than common radio. Thanks for all the fun so far.

    Are you going to provide an API? If so, will it be soon? I like, nay LOVE Pandora, and I like the interface, but would like to put together my own. Maybe even have a community where people could upload their own "skins" so people could have a choice? ;)

    So I totally dig this site, totally amazing if you ask me, but sometimes when I just wanna chill and listen to music I like the room to be dark, and a monitor glowing brightens any room, and I like saying if I like the music or not so I need my monitor on. I know that there are ways to play the stuff on this site through a media player and things like that, but I think allowing customizable skins, or even just some different preset colors for the site would be awesome.

    (quick note - I am NOT the classical jerk from earlier! He shames all Phils everywhere. :P ) Pandora is a totally amazing resource, and I can't give enough praise to those who are responsible for it. The whole idea is revolutionary genius, the delivery and sound quality is superb, and within minutes I had found a couple of great new artists I'd never heard of! Brilliant! Fantastic site, recommended it to all my friends. So imagine how we all felt when we found out that we make accounts because we don't live in the US? Now I won't pretend to understand all the legal reasons behind this but given that I subscribe to three net radio stations in the US without any problem, I'm not only disappointed but very surprised. You must get sick of answering this, but when us UK music-lovers going to be able to sign up?

    I just wanted to thank you for this wonderful service. It amazes me how music that I thought was unrelated actually is more similar than I thought. There is much more commonality to my musical tastes than I thought. And I thought I had eclectic tastes, until I found things I like showing up where I wasn't especting to find them!

    Pandora is great, but please - think about stand alone widget for poor WinXP users.

    Whilst playing, the music stops and starts during the song. I have a new laptop, could there be a problem with the software ?. Running on Windows XP with dial up internet. Thanks

    Dialup would be your problem. You don't have enough bandwidth to stream the music fast enough to play.

    LOVE this station!! In fact, I like it so much, I was wondering if I could record it to CD so I could listen to Pandora on the long trips I make to West Virginia and Milwaukee Wisconsin. Please say there's a way I can do this. Thanks, Orville

    Pandora is really amazing.Just wondering if there is a way to display songs plaing in an instant messenger (Eg like the windows live messenger plugin). Or maybe a way to play pandora outside a browser, perhaps a standalone player or sumthing like that?

    pandora doesn't open completely and will not allow a change in my current email address (old email address can't be changed)to reach the help page. HOW CAN I REACH HELP?

    Pandora is really great! Only problem I have encountered is that is sometimes causes firefox to crash. But what a innovative service, thanks!

    Why no instant messenger now playing option? I just spent ages looking for one but I can't find one. It's so annoying, even if I hack winamp to get pandora in it as a web radio it still doesn't show in I.M. Come on guys - get with the program! Also I'm keep getting awfull pop-metal tunes on radio stations that normally play much better bands - there should be a "no pop-crap" button. :P

    I want the msn now playing option as well :-)

    Apparently the genome thing only applies to some kinds of popular music. Type in "50s" and you get nothing but modern artists. Nobody that was alive in the fifties. In a few songs you are listening to 80s music. Since when is Alanis Morrisset a "soul" artist? I got to her in four songs from "Aretha Franklin" !! Try "swing" music" and you get the same wrong songs and artists over and over. Way off-topic music, decades wrong. Try "soul" music. Same thing. Try "boogie woogie". Same thing. If XM can manage all these music styles, there must be an audience. Please add some range to your musical selections.
