    This is a great idea, I love listening to Pandora, but you guys should add some more youtube-based artists (Charlie McDonnell, Eddplant, Ministry of Magic...)

    Pandora got very gay, why do you have to pause so long between songs now? Why do you advertise? I am not using Pandora again because you guys went corperate on us. Internet Radio should be free from audio adds, PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
