The fine engineers over at Facebook have done something pretty neat. You can now “import” all your Pandora activity (station creation, bookmarked songs and artists) into your Facebook news feed.
Setting it up couldn’t be simpler — just visit your Facebook profile page and click the “import” link at the top of the Mini-Feed section, select Pandora, enter the email address you used when you registered with Pandora and Facebook will fetch your most recent station creations as well as your recent bookmarks and add them to your mini-feed. Better still, from that point on, any time you create a station or bookmark something on Pandora those events will automatically be added to your mini-feed also. It’s a great way to keep your Facebook friends up to date on your latest musical discoveries.
We feel pretty lucky to be included in the very short list of sites that Facebook is choosing to integrate directly into the mini-feed. Thanks Facebook!

    What's the difference between this and the Facebook Pandora application? Doesn't the app already list whenever you start listening to a station on Pandora or bookmark a song, etc?

    @Erin -- the Pandora application for Facebook has all kinds of cool features, including the ability to populate your FB profile with all your favorite bands and stations, search for new artists, listen to over a million song samples, and share your discoveries with your Facebook friends. The only downside is you have to find and install our application for all of that to happen. This mechanism is much simpler -- just updates to your mini-feed when you create stations and bookmarks, but it's much easier to find and has the big advantage that your updates will be visible to all your friends on Facebook -- not just the people that have installed the Pandora Facebook application.

    Hi Elmer - Great question! Well, you can buy a machine that will assist you in converting your LPs to CD. For instance, there is a turntable that you can buy that plugs directly into your computer and converts the songs to a digital format. (you can then burn them onto CDs, if you choose) Here's an example: http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/mp3/90a0/ I'm told that it's actually quite easy to do, though it may be a bit time-consuming if you have a large LP library to transfer. I believe you can buy this "Ion USB turntable" or something similar at BestBuy, WalMart, or Amazon.com. ** Another option is to send your LPs out to a company who will do the conversion for you, for a fee. I did a search of the internet and found a bunch of options you could look into here: http://tinyurl.com/5yzvzr One last thing... here's a page with exhaustive information about converting LPs to CDs. Personally, I find it a bit overwhelming, but it's worth a read! http://www.wikihow.com/Change-Your-Records-Into-CDs Good luck! Lucia, from Pandora

    I have just discovered Pandora radio a few days ago and I want to tell you that I love your internet radio. I love all your music selections. I love the no commerical, no talk, just good music.I have selected a few artists, and albums that I like, but have just began on this. I love the blues music and R&B and could listen to it all day. Actually, I do listen to blues a lot on cable TV. Now, when I am on my computer, I have Pandora music to listen to. I like it that I can put in my own selections, and I hear them soon thereafter. I am telling others about your fabulous station. Keep up the good work. I love the name Pandora also. It reminds me of Pandora's box, which is a potpourri of all things. So much to pick from. From now on, I am a Pandora fan. Thank you for such a wonderful radio station. Carol
