  1. I just became a listener a few days ago, and I really like what you’ve done! However, I was raised with classical music and so like to listen to it regularly. I haven’t been able to find hardly any classical music to listen to on your website. Every time I type in the name of an artist or the name of a song, I always get the message that it either can’t be found, or that special requests are not possible or whatever. What am I doing wrong? I would really enjoy being able to listen to classical music!

  2. This is a great sounding site. I am so glad that I was introduced to you. There is a band Maktub that you all should listen to. They have a “Maxwell meets Phish” kind of sound alot of soul and very cool riffs. You will find yourself singing the songs all day. Also a great cover of No Quarter. Check em out.

  3. Hi I am in Japan listening to music from your stations available by e-mail. People here don’t celebrate Christmas much so I am happy to have some Christmas music and especially in English, I like Japanese but English is refreshing, for a change. I am originally from USA.
    Thank you

  4. This might have already been suggested, but I’d love it if the album release year was displayed right on the album cover or near the other details. I’m always curious if what I’m seeing/listening to is brand new or if I don’t know it because it’s so old. I know I can go into the details, but that’s just not nearly as convenient.
    Pandora rocks!

  5. hey i know this great band in Spokane. They’re called “Man of Action” or “Derby”. they played at the new years party we went to. sadly they had to break up but maybe you can still get ahold of some of their music. would love it if you put them into the Genome Project.

  6. Wow ! What a site. Love the tunes as I listen to my 6 different stations daily at work. Seattle boy who toured for years with a few bands. Would love to see some of them out there on your site.

  8. hey u shuld come 2 spokane. we kno how to party….. yeaaaahhh spokane rocks we have had nickle back, e-40, and many others u guys rok.

  9. First of all I really love your Reggae selection, while Im at work, what used to be sometimes stressfull work have all but dissapeard. Second of all in my opinion you guys should not change a thing, keep up the excellent work. Peace. Your friend A.Z.

  10. As a listener/devotee, when the RIAA (such bad,bad boys) and the Royalty Board did their thing, I added one more voting voice to the legislature & the senate for good measure.
    But Tim, I’ll pony up part of the .07 cents per play if that makes a difference. Your gig is well worth it. See you in Seattle.

  11. Hey, I want to mention a great little jazz place in Kennewick, WA (East side). It’s called Ivory Jazz. Hip, loft atmosphere. Lots of our local award winning wines served. Great jazz on weekends and some cool stuff happening during the week as well. The other night I caught an awesome young guy playing a baby grand with accompanied by a very cool accoustic bass player. Some sweet, outside the box stuff. Another time it was a wild man on the Hammond B3 — intense. Check it out if you are ever on our side of the state enjoying our SUNSHINE (sorry Seattle), our golf courses, and our wine.

  12. Hey everyboy should check out “The Honorary Fish” at thehonoraryfish.com ! They are a sweet new band started by the seattle drum school!

  13. I’m a little late to your May 31st visit to Washington, but I do have a couple of music recommendations: The Lonely Forest (Anacortes, WA), John Van Deusen (Anacortes, WA) and The Lonely H (Port Angeles, WA).

  14. Thank you Pandora for bringing the Wailing Souls to my attention….Especially “Firehouse Rock”. Keep up the great job. Your friend Damian De La Cruz…….PEACE.

  15. Dude, next time that you are in the Pacific Northwest don’t forget to visit the TriCities especially Pasco. We have some excellent local bands I recommend Ramagossa Blue…..

  16. We are wondering why we can no longer access Pandora? My husband saw something about it only being available in the US. Last we looked Washington state is still in the US. He listened to it every day and really misses it. I hope you can help.

  17. hey Keedz
    my name is kevin :>) I post blogs and write reviews about bands like Rolling Stones, Widespread panic,etc and some life experiences you might find interesting.. yeeeeagh
    I was listenin’ to a experimental radio show from the UK (radio 1 ) mentioned “Rebelski” a melodic downtempo song which brought me to Pandora. Anywho I’m From Montana and noticed you don’t have it on there hmmm wondering why??
    I live in Missoula that has a fair amount of music and Culture.. Soooo I just wanted to say check out the “Badlander” Loft, Otherside, Adams center University Theater… for Updated Hiphop, electronic, jam bands, and local artists as well….. bands that are coming to perform: Tool, prefuse 73 & Busdriver

  18. I just thought you should know i was one of your origional listeners, and have posted pandora in my shop, maybe 200 people have indicated what a treat the music was……..then i log on and find im over my hours of 40…….wish i would have had some warning……..granted i know you have expenses but so do small business’s and budgets etc…….had i had some time to budget it would be different, it makes no difference that the price is attractive, it was just the sudden change of events, years of listening and supporting your advertisers…and then im off just like that……..hummmmmmmmm
    and i did call my congressional people and senate staff to help with saving pandora……..gary

  19. I live in Washington, and I was wondering if you could add the song Europe’s Skies By Alexander Rybak, as you have Alexander Rybak, but not that song, which is one of my favorite songs by him, thank you. =0)

    I typed in Smooth Jazz in the google bar and some how found you!
    How lucky am I, especially since our beloved smooth jazz station KWJZ 98.9 was taken off the air very abruptly right after Christmas. :(
    I feel like I found a new “home” here on your site, I was going through musical withdrawals!
    You are awsome for all the efforts and energy it must take to keep up with all this.
    Sincerely,
    Carryn – A very content new listener :)
