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.

    congratulations! I really do thank you for your invention, I am a big fan of gangster rap music. Most stations don't play that kind of music, but you do now that's Gangsta!!!!!! Keep up the good work.thx

    I love pandora & wouldn't mind paying the subscription price, but I have six kids & if I pay for it they want it also that's to much money . You should have a general subscription that one fee covers a household or as many devices. Thanks but I have to start looking elsewhere

    I just want to say thank you for making Pandora. I get to listen to all sorts of music. I love it. I wish i could get it in my car. I would pay for a membership then. I have satellite in my car and I don't like it. I would rather have Pandora. Any way you can help me with that.

    There are some days where i find myself hearing a certain song in my brain playing over and over again in the same repeated chorus, and i HAVE to put Pandora on to find it or block it out.. Seriously, Pandora keeps me from going crazy!! I love the different styles, and the like or dislike options, the fact that i can find a band immediately, and not have to dig trough my thousands of missing CDs.. You guys rock my world!! Thank you for being here..

    Well first I would like to say that the only reason you have 1 out of 3 smartphones tuning in a month.... Is because the person next to us has Pandora turned on already. No need to have 2 phones running. d^_^b Also you guys should throw a huge live event with artists from lots of genres to perform. People can come to a HUGE music festival! Then everyone can tune into the "Pandora Live Music Festival" station. ONLY ON PANDORA! Anyway if you do do this. I would love a ticket. Congratulations to your success! Thank you for spreading your amazing idea, for us to experience.

    I discovered my love for Portuguese Fado music on Pandora! I started a Ali Farka Toure channel as I loved the CD Talking Timbuktu. On my Ali channel, I heard Cesaria Evora for the first time. Then I created a Cesaria Evora channel and on this channel I first heard Amalia Rodriguez, Linda Leonardo, Mariza, Madredeus, Vinicius Cantuaria, omg! the list goes on and on! I never knew about this music before Pandora! I love Pandora and all kinds of music. My tastes are very eclectic and Pandora suits my needs so perfectly! I love Pandora. Thank you Tim! I am so grateful!

    I'm a retired old person, and for years Pandora has eased my loss of several loved ones by listening to their favorite songs or mine on your radio. You have been with me pretty much in my daily life, through the bad and the good. Hoping to be listening to you for a good many years more. THANK YOU!!

    I think it would be FANTASTIC if Pandora expanded their app to gaming consoles. Like PS3 and Xbox 360. I am an avid gamer and would absolutely love it if the two mixed.
