Just returned from a great gathering at the headquarters of our mobile partner, Sprint. We held a town hall meeting on their college-esque campus. Quite some digs, complete with health center and 5 cafeterias… with 60,000 employees it’s probably fair to say they’re the larger of the two partners…

A couple hundred folks showed up to the event, which was also closed circuit broadcast to their Reston campus. Particular shout out to Celia for her tireless work spreading the word. And to Alana, Jeff, Laura, Jonathan, Craig (volunteer mic runner) and of course Patrick our first Sprint contact from many moons ago… nice to finally see this all become real…


Folks lingered outside the auditorium for a while to let the room warm up… yes, it was 117 degrees outside but too cold in the auditorium. I’m lodging an official complaint to all the hot summer states in the US… less AC, please!
It was great to be greeted upon my arrival by three consecutive Sprint employees sporting Pandora t-shirts or hatsπŸ™‚ Saw many more over the course of the day.

We’re still distributing hats&shirts to those who didn’t arrive in time… 100 and counting.

I really felt a collective sense that when this application starts becoming better known, it’s going to change the rules of mobile radio…

Some great conversation afterward too, particularly about user interface on the phone, porting to Treo, 1x service (probably doesn’t make sense…) and much more.

Thanks again for being such great hosts…

    I just discovered Pandora a couple of weeks ago and I just love it! The thumbs up or down option is a fantastic idea. The more I learn about it the more I like it! I've contacted my state Senators about the HR bill right away. We have to keep this going! Great idea and great job! And keep the emails about updates going!

    I'm looking for a song or artist. The songs lyrics say "If we just lay here and, if we just lay here, and just forget about the world." Can anyone help me? I'm here in Independence,Mo. I've been enjoying Josh Groben.I was a hippie back in the seventies. Those were the good ole day to me. I don't like the 21st century. I am also a born again Christian so that shapes my values. The world has nothing for me. I've been there, done that. The world is controled by the prince of this world,satan. And he is destroying peoples lives. Just look around. Obama can't do anything. Were near the end, and you are not ready to live until you are ready to die! Check out MERCY ME or Steven Curtis Chapman. They tell the truth. I know the truth is the last thing most people want to hear. We need to turn to God while it is still called today. I apologize for preaching but God is everything to me. He saved my life more than once. I could never go back into the world system. It's a lie straight from hell. If anyone can help me identify the song above I would appreciate it very much. Because of HIM, Dave Rothwell

    Dear Tim, Thank you for making this wonderful site for all of us to enjoy. the music on this site is so amazing. they are songs that are not on the radio anymore and cannot be found in stores so when we hear them here they really bring back all those memories of old times. i love songs from the 70,80 and alot of country. I have been singing since i was in elementary school and music to me is a major part of my life. i love it and thanks to you and your crew we can all enjoy all the great songs once again. Donna Johnstone

    The new Pandora format sucks BIG-TIME!!! When I first signed up, songs played without interruption; now, they stutter constantly. Before, if lyrics were available, it was easy to copy them, so we could sing those songs at our next musicale; now, it's impossible to copy the lyrics. Also, I detest any site that has no contact capability. What do you have against email? I am going to cancel my Pandora subscription. You've gone backwards! It appears you are having too much fun on your trips to pay close attention to what made you popular in the first place.
