Update – The Columbus town hall is set! Here are the details:
WHEN: Monday, October 16th, 2006 at 7pm
WHERE: Milo Arts
617 East Third Avenue
Columbus, OH 43201
Please RSVP by sending an email to tour@pandora.com with “Columbus” in the subject line. Hope to see you there!
I’m currently planning an itinerary for my first tour stop in Ohio. Come mid-October, I’ll be stopping in Columbus for a town hall meeting (tentatively at the Milo Arts studios), and would love the opportunity to meet Pandora student listeners at nearby Ohio State University. If you have any suggestions for appropriate venues on this or other college campuses (we’re open to all suggestions!), whether at a music class or in the student union, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below. Love spending time with students.
We love reading and responding to your feedback on the blog – the comments have been a treasure trove of great insights and guidance as we plan our visits. If you have a particular idea you want to discuss, or just want to get more involved, we’re eager for help – just drop us an email at tour@pandora.com. Please include your location in the subject line of your message too. No idea is too big or small!

    Cleveland is really pretty in the fall - and besides the Rock Hall of Fame, we have many wonderful spots for the Pandora tour. Plus, there is a thriving local music scene (I don't remember any bands that came out of Columbus). Check us out!

    Check out Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Though you wouldn't expect it, we have an amazing local music scene. I am a dj for the school station, and I find new local bands to interview every week. Some bands to check out if you are in the area - Southeast Engine, Jake Householder, Nostra Nova, The Princes of Hollywood, and Red Dahlia.

    After you hit Columbus and Athens, work out a circuit to hit Kent State and Youngstown State, Bowling Green, Toledo, and Detroit. Classical music lovers have to hear the Cleveland Orchestra in its own hall, stop by the Cleveland Institute of Music, and swing out to Oberlin for conservatory performances. Check out www.pluggedincleveland.com for the clubs and acts. You may want to arrange a visit to Cuyahoga Community College to learn about the Cleveland Jazzfest and Tri-C's approach to Rock and Roll pedagogy in conjunction with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 'Nuff said?

    Hey another Clevelander here! If you guys come here that would be awesome. We have tons of places downtown! One suggestion I would do to improve the stations would be if a song pops up on one station and we would prefer it on a different pre-made station to be able to switch the song over to the other station. Keep up the good work and thanks! Kristy

    WOW, I love your site. Thanks so much. I am sharing it with all my friends. As for a place in my area for music, no clue this is a fairly rural area. But, let me please suggest Undo's resteraunt in St. Clairesville for dinner. Play on. Terri

    Hey, I'm definitely agreeing with the Cleveland people. I suggest coming to Case Western Reserve University campus in University Circle. We're right next to the Cleveland Institutes of Music and Art too.

    After Randy Newman "immortalized" Cleveland in song, to be forever known as the city whose river caught on fire, Pandora really could help us out here ... I'm sure there are hundreds of Cleveland "genes" in the Genome project already. Despite living in the Bay area now, my musical soul will always call Cleveland home ... stop by and you won't be disappointed ... Ian Hunter was spot on ... Cleveland ROCKS !

    Hey, you and your team are doing a great job getting out there and getting all kinds of diffrent music, thats what i like to see, most online radio or radio-players only play what they want you to hear and your all about what we want to hear keep it up! Oh one more thing everybody left out Dayton Ohio! On the way to cinci you should stop by 5th street, its an old historic part called Oregon Distrist. Pretty good local scene. THANKS
