Here’s a few more fun staff-curated stations for you to sample…. tell us what you think, and tell us about your own well-formed stations too!
Vic, one of our trusty engineers and a guitarist for Soul Captives and Anouman, has these favorites to share:
Jamaica ’69: Ska, Rocksteady, Early Reggae from the late 60s and early 70s
Funky Organ!: New Orleans style funk with heavy, heavy Hammond B3 organs a la The Meters
Music for Goin’ Steady: Go steady with your girl (or boy) with this
Vic is also featured in one of our lovely Pandora podcasts, one of my favorites, actually….Reggae, Ska, Rocksteady and Dub
Here’s a handful more from Veronica, in our advertising department, who’s a music reviewer on the side (where does she find the time?):
rock and roll, b**ch
not another “the” band
get your garage on!
country soaked sap
Casey, another of our brainiac engineers, offers up his Acid Blues station, which is centered around blues-infused hard rock, mostly late 60s and early 70s. He says it plays great mainstream songs as well as lesser-known gems.
Jasmyn of our listener advocate team (and a drummer in 3 different bands, including the Skygreen Leopards) has
these fun stations to contribute: 60′s – 70′s Californian Sunsets and the “trippy” Psychedelic Realms.
The station Alyssa, our Pandora renaissance woman, is most proud of is Alyssa’s Ella Fitzgerald Radio, which despite its name, is based on all her favorite jazz singers. She says she rarely has to give a thumbs down, and she sings along to the station all day long.
Scream And Run Away Radio is meant to be a spooky station, and while it has taken a lot of work on Alyssa’s part, I can assure you that it is indeed rather creepy.
Adam, one of our system administrators (they keep the site pumping!), contributes these three stations to the mix: Dub & Roots Reggae, based on music from the 60s through the 80s, Adam’s Bluegrass, “heavy on the banjo”, and Funk, Soul, & Go-Go Music.
If you missed the first two posts about stations curated by staff (how could you?) and you want to try more, they’re here and here.
