200 million strong!

We are very excited to announce today that Pandora has reached 200 million registered listeners!

When we launched http://www.pandora.com in 2005, we hoped to create a new way to discover and enjoy music that was completely personalized for each and every listener.  We envisioned a time when artists of all kinds would thrive on radio, connecting with fans who loved exactly their kind of music.

I have to admit, we had no idea what was in store! It has been, and continues to be, an extraordinary experience for all of us.

A hallmark of these years has been the steady stream of amazing stories from our listeners, whether they got engaged while listening to Pandora, mourned the passing of a loved one, or celebrated a special life milestone.

Have a Pandora story to share with us on this special occasion? We’d love to hear it.

    • I have been trying to get the the queen station Pandora in middle east. Dubai or jeddah but i could not get it. I am an American work over seas .is there any luck to get it.

    • Thank YOU, Tim and all at Pandora, for making work at the pc way more enjoyable! It truly makes all the difference in the world. Of course, I don’t always have to be ‘working’ to enjoy my favorite tunes, but whatever I may be up to, I’ll be much more productive at it with Pandora in the background!

    • It is the great way to listening radio, because you can personalize your own stations, I hope to have in my car. Thank you Tim Westergren, you had a wonderful idea.

    • Thank you for Pandora ! Your classical station is turned on first, then I get to work on other computer activities.

    • I’m very happy to be the 200 millions listeners of Pandora Radio. I love this Station. Every time I can on my car, in my home and in my smart phone I’be conected. Thank you Mr. Tim Westergreen for this great idea to enjoy our favorite music. Sincerely; Rafael Cruz

    • Great job Tim, Pandora is a part of my everyday life and will continue to be. I am a radio Jock and do have one suggestion, what if you could re broadcast stations like 91.1 fm WHFC ?

    • Congratulations Tim and your team – I have an ongoing relationships with Pandora and to be honest I would be very lost without it – I’m a writer and the calming flow of the music I have chosen is quiet something else. Best move i have made in years – believe me this is no idle chatter.

    • ….what a great combination!!!!…only in america and only Pandora, where the listening is so easy on the ear, and just what YOU want to hear!!!thank you, Pandora!!!!

    • i think that the loyal, longtime customers shud get a premium upgrade as a gift. i love pandora and iv introduced it to all my friends and family. we thank u for introducing pandora to the public

    • I love my Pandora, I ride the Bay Area Rapid Transit (train) in California, from Hayward to Oakland everyday and I have to listen to my favorite songs on my Pandora and it makes me feel so good on Bart, I am happy before I get to work and start my a stressful day. LOVE IT!!!

    • Pandora is going strong down here in Texas. I am amazed at the growth of the station! Congrats to all, keep it up! Peace out…

    • Well, that’s great, Timmy! But you lost me as a listener when you sent me an email threatening to start charging me for listening to your “free” streaming TOO MUCH! For some reason, you can’t sell enough advertising to support true free streaming. You can’t have it both ways, Tim. Fortunately, BoomerRadio and IHeartRadio really are what they say they are. So good luck with your 2 billion listeners. I hope you treat them better!

    • Everybody in my family enjoy Pandora since you start. Please continue to have this great program. Thanks, Jerry Chirichigno and family

    • Thank you as well for the opportunity to remember alot of my childhood songs that i had forgotten about i love pandora, when i found pandora a couple of years ago there where no more cds for me lol thank you again….

    • To tim westergren, when god made you he broke the mode, cause i am thankful he made someone to love music as I do! Pandora is all that, with a bag of chips and the dip and a coke and surely a smile to wash it down with. Pandora has enhanced my life on rainy days, good days and bad days, thank god for pandora and you, may god continue to richly bless you . Tucson, az

    • I think Pandora is the best. I have it on for hours everyday. I only wish they would have it available in every nursing home, long term care, assisted living etc. These people would love it and it could be customized for each person by them or their families. Thanks for coming up with it.

    • Thank you for a wonderful listening choice! My day is beautiful even when it’s raining, just doesn’t get any better!

    • I am a constant listener of Pandora, I love it because you can choose the kind of music you want to listen and they have an while variation, congratulation for the 200 million of happy listeners and I wish you the best in the future.

    • Hi folks…..I am an occasional listener and enjoy the formats I have created but wonder why your stats people are doing the strings and mirrors crap. In your “unigue artists and songs” catagory you are comparing 400+ stations/genres to one FM radio station. There are over 10,000 broadcast, over the air, radio stations in the US. Take out the News/Talk/Sports formats and you still have 8657 music formats. If you do the math, radio still wins in this catagory. Just be good at what you do, not what radio does, and you may survive in spite of all the outragous copyright costs you are forced to pay……….Thanks.

    • Is the best, i enjoy my spanish music,after my kids listen only but they say, dad pandora have your music,change my life, I love you guys..

    • Thanks: You guys have fine tuned all my favs. So, I guess that what keeps me tuned-in /tuned-up & tuned-on.

      Tim,You are the music man of the millenium

  1. I love Pandora radio! Thank you for allowing me to listen to the music I love! My local radio stations don’t play certain songs anymore. So Pandora radio u are thee best!!

  2. Thank you Tim for creating Pandora, it does make my day at work go so much more smoothly while listening to the great music – I must admit my singing hasn’t gotten any better, keep up the great work :)

  3. Congratulations. Now how about you start giving back to the artists? The music creators are not even making 0.01 cents per stream? Surely you can redistribute more fairly than that. With 200 million listeners and all.

  4. Love it comes in handy while at work over night shelter, with teenagers they get to hear the music they like before the fall asleep ;-)

  5. There’s no morning, sinse I started listening PANDORA, without the opportunity to hear what I want to hear to start my day!
    I love to praise God with songs that build up my spirit and encourage me!
    I just can give thanks to God for such a blessing! Believe or not it is!!!

  6. No thank you pandora for making a program ware I can lost my self in a music wen I’m happy or sad now I can find any artist wen ever I want

    Thank you pandora

  7. Pandora was a great place to listen to music, but now that they have put a limit on the amount of time that we can listen per month I have stop listening to them. I now listen to TuneIn Radio and it’s free 100%. They may charge one day like Pandora but for right now it’s free.

  8. Congratulations! So how about a thank you gift for listeners?? Three months ad-free would be a great “free” gift!

  9. Error 1039 acurred (on my blackberry 9900) while retieving music and shut my Pandora down for over 2 months. How can I fix this problem so I can get off slacker and back to Pandora

  10. Wow, that’s amazing! I have loved Pandora since I first started listening about five years ago and it’s awesome to see that it’s catching on. Keep up the good work! Lance

  11. I love pandora I put all my old school groups in an put it on schuffel an let it go an I jam all nite long luv u pandora

  13. Thanks Tim you make our life more simple and very happy with the music we miss ,the music we love with the music that makes us cry & smile .

  15. Just keep Pandora going it’s the best. Instead of trying to channel in to regular radio stations trying to find music that you want to hear, at least with Pandora you don’t have to wait to hear what you want.

  16. I have been listening about 1 and half years!! And it’s helped me through Very hard times w/ no children and most of family deseased!! Plus I am disabled with many Bad issues with health!! So it’s helped with keeping possitive thinking and to keep Jesus Christ on all good are possible!!!!
