As Pandora’s music curator, my main job is to select the music that goes into Pandora. I’m constantly listening to new bands, researching genres for back catalog, reading books, and searching high and low for music that looks and sounds like it’s worth discovering.
There’s so much music here, though, that I sometimes lose track of the records I selected, even if it was something I was really dying to hear! They come in to the office, get analyzed, and sneak into the library stacks before I can snag ’em. Sad, I know.
So, in the spirit of trying to catch the ones that got away, I want to know what you listeners have discovered, rediscovered, or have just been listening to in Pandora.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: list your top 3 Pandora discoveries, and what station led you to them.
Chico Buarque (first heard on Caetano Veloso Radio)
Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Co. (first heard on Brian Eno Radio, I think)
Ray Wylie Hubbard (first heard on Tom Heyman Radio)
(And just for fun, here’s a station from my top 3 discoveries: Chico’s Mallard: Wylie Radio.
ps – thanks to everyone who suggested names a while back. We have a winner! Thanks to Dom for the clear, concise and to-the-point “Play, Listen, Repeat.”
