When it came to music, what mattered to you in 2007?
I’ll start the bidding. Oscar Peterson’s passing was very significant for me. My musical idol. He was one of those artists who comes around rarely – like a Fred Astaire or a Picasso. The transcendent figure who leaves a unique footprint. I mourn his departure. But I’m glad to have been a witness – thank god he put out so many records (over 200) – to keep us company in his absence.
I look forward to reading Pandora listeners’ patchwork of musical memories.
Happy new year to everyone.

    As some of you may know Pandora is about to quit the UK because of a dispute on royalties. Is there anyone who can help me to continue to obtain the music here in England? I'm more than happy to pay for the service which is just unique. Here's hoping!

    Springsteen's "Magic" cd and tour was the highlight of '07, a year that was very sad personally. I lost my sister-in-law and friend, Linda, at the young age of 52. The world will never be the same again and I don't know how I could have survived without music. Along with Bruce, I've listened to alot of Leslie Feist, Brandi Carlile, Cat Power and the Killers. The passing of Dan Fogelberg was a shock... too young. My lover introduced him to me in the mid-80's and his music holds a special place in my heart. I'm hoping that 2008 will bring some much needed uplifting... at least it's the last year of the Bush regime, huh? Happy New Year to all my fellow Pandora listeners.

    Thanks Tim Oscar will be missed by many, I had the good fortune to work with him on two occasions, a wonderful human being and absolute fountain of music and positive energy, he could find something good in almost anything.

    I registered this morning and used about an hour or more to ascertain the quality the Pandora message proclaimed. I couldn't get a sound of music from anthing! Even the sample did not play! What's with this program?!?

    I go with the passing of Max Roach as my bummer of the year. Since the mid-40s Max was as much a pioneer of modern jazz music and percussion as any artist: Parker, Gillespie, Powell, Rollins, Coltrane, Davis, etc...
