Happy Hanukkah

Happy Holidays!
This year, we’re delighted to present a Hanukkah station on Pandora.
Also known as “The Festival of Lights,” Hanukkah begins this year on December 11 at sundown.

This is a special, curated station that solely features Hanukkah-related music. While you won’t be able to personalize it like other Pandora stations, we hope that the music we’ve collected adds to the fun and festivity of your celebrations. Enjoy the music, light the lights, and have a wonderful Hanukkah.

…For those who are looking for Christmas music, you’ll find some here.

  1. I’m definitely enjoying the station, while having the small quibbles I suspect everyone has with curated stations over song choice (Zum Gali Gali is not exactly what comes to my mind as a Hanukkah song, even if it’s on something labeled as a Hanukkah album). It’s clearly not possible to know if any given song is on your list, but I was wondering about one of my favorite Hanukkah songs. The only recording I’ve ever heard of it was by The Short Sisters on this Fast Folk Musical Magazine album: http://www.folkways.si.edu/TrackDetails.aspx?itemid=576. Just thought I’d bring it to your attention.

  2. Hey this is pretty cool. I have used different music stations like yahoo music and slacker, and I have not found anything like a Hanukkah station.
    It is cool to see what kind of music, those of that faith enjoy.

  3. I love the music you offer. Thanks for the hard work putting this together. I’m sorry I did not know about the music a year agao. Keep me posted on all the new things. EH.

    We bought over 70 Hanukkah albums, but it doesn’t look like we found that Short Sisters song… sorry! You “stumped” us. ;)
    We have 3 versions of “Zum Gali Gali” on Hanukkah albums we purchased, but I’ll happily delete them from this playlist if you think they’re inappropriate for the station. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks, and Happy Holidays!! :) Lucia

  6. I am over the Christmas music….is there a way to block the mix of that music now….I enjoyed it over the holiday but am ready to move on/
    Thanks….I enjoy the station

  7. What moron in California, likely, puts the Eagles in the same category as Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Slim Harpo and John Lee Hooker. Probably an ass who doesn’t know his or her music.

  8. I just downloaded your program to my iphone and am disappointed that there are no technology or gardening or educational programs available. Since I dont listen to music I wont be using the application.

  9. New subject. I am enjoying Pandora so much. Thanks for this terific radio. There is just one request. I am longing for world music, especially African traditional and jazz. When I search for classic artists like Miriam Mikaba or King Sunny Ade Pandora can’t find it. I am still relying on other sources for African music.Otherwise I love it.

  10. Can’t find anywhere else to ask this… I want to download an audio equalizer to use with Pandora on Windows XP. Need to know what kind of streaming Pandora uses. Thanks.

  11. I’m not one to gush, I’m pretty jaded bout music in general. However, you guys at Pandora Radio have changed my life! (for the best.)Thank You! Thank You!I LOVE PANDORA RADIO!

  12. My “complaint” is:
    I never get any notes from you. No contact what-so-ever. I just learned here, 2 months late, you had a Chanukah station. I had to learn on an a Blackberry users group you had an updated app for our Blackberries.
    AND we are both paying “members”.
    I also learned about the Livio Radio from an outside source. No ads from you. I would like the option of signing up for news bulletins (email) from you.
    Thanks.
    mike and Jenny

  13. Really enjoyed the trip back in time with the station you provided me.
    I have xm satellite radio but when sirius bought them out the program turned to crap.
    I will keep you updated on my progress.

  14. First of all, I am so tired of all of these comment/blog available sites and pages that say my comments are only as valuble as my ability to read correctly and type a bunch of squiggly letters and numbers. If I type it wrong, then I lose every thought I was writing for the last five minutes. What is that? Anyway, if I subscribe to a monthly paid subscription to Pandora, will I be able to listen to the entirety of songs that I bookmark?
    Thank You

  15. Speaking of Diversity and Unity..
    The Ayyam-i-Ha (Intercalary Days), 19 day fast ending with
    The feast of Naw-Ruz.(Baha’i New year)
    March 21.
    Still, I can’t suggest any “traditional” music for the this holiday.
    So, Music in Celebration of the Unity of the World.
    One Planet, One People, One God.
    Equality,Unity,Diversity.
    Happy Naw-Ruz! Every one!

    Help Help

  17. @mike and jenny — You might have your account set to not receive email updates. Under “account”, make sure the box is checked that says “send me personalized recommendations and tips”.
    @Patrick O’Donnell — We were forced to introduce the captcha system to prevent spammers from abusing our blog system. Sorry for any convenience. As for being able to play bookmarked songs on demand in their entirety, that is not a feature of Pandora One. For more information on the benefits of upgrading to Pandora One, have a look at: http://www.pandora.com/pandora_one
    @Maria — Sorry to hear you’re having difficulty. Please send an email detailing the problem to pandora-support@pandora.com; they should be able to help you get up and running again.

  18. This is the best station ever i would not listen to anu thing else.I would recommended pandora to everybody its great can say enough about it.I love it…………………

  19. How can I, once and for ever more, banish seasonal music from my stations? I have marked every single Christmas song as disliked but they continue to come across. Your system is simply not getting the message. I don’t want ANY seasonal music on MY station! Please tell me how to filter it.

  20. Hi, hope to see Golem’s music appear on Pandora soon. Great rock Klezmer band out of NYC. Seen them live three times and they’re very energetic, talented, and entertaining.

  21. Hi My name is Lisa and I just was turned on to this, I just want to say thanks! This is really awesome and it had to take some very serious work and dedication, my girls and I love it. And we will be listening for a long time!

  22. i am a great listener,i have no idea about pandora untill my friends introduce me to pandora ,but unfortunately for me,i cannot sigh in ,please sigh me in now.
