I’ve been quite remiss in the past month on the regular town hall recaps… it’s not for lack of events.
End of August was a whirlwind. St. Louis (where I heard one of the most moving comments by a listener – father who’s son had introduced him to Pandora, I got a little choked up), Minneapolis – my hometown. What a great to give a town hall full of aunts, uncles and cousins… Unfortunately, my camera was on the fritz (anyone have any pictures – I’d love to post them)…
Then spent several days in Boston at the AARP conference. Great to spend some time talking about music with our older crowd… First time we’ve had a Pandora “learning lab”. Kind of a cool new way to try.

Very glad to have Nina there to help… lots of one-on-one time.
See more pictures from the show on the next page…

Folks had no trouble at all getting up and running. Really interesting to see what they started stations with, a sampling: Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Dixie Chicks, Benny Goodman… and of course everyone tried a Sinatra station…

One of the principal concerns I heard was privacy. There’s a HUGE reluctance on the part of folks to give any kind of personal information.

There were almost 30,000 people in attendance. It was a HUGE conference hall.
