One of the really flattering things that’s happened to us over the months since we launched is that many of you have written to us asking if you can link to Pandora from your website. We’ve had a basic mechanism in place for some time that lets you link directly to a song or artist station. If that’s what you’d like to do, take a look at this FAQ entry.
In most cases though, people have been asking for some kind of Pandora “create station” module or a banner that they can put up. So tonight we’ve put up a page that will make doing so easy. Just head over to http://www.pandora.com/how_to_link.shtml to choose from a variety of different options.
I can’t tell you how gratifying it has been to get these sorts of requests. Thanks for asking; we’re delighted to finally be able to lend a hand.

    Hmm... these banners are great and all, but it would be nice to have a banner I could place for my shared stations.

    For all the cool "little things" you folks manage (and I really do appreciate those things), the logo--or lack thereof--needs work. Time for a contest...

    Example, James. The motivation for me is to get people to listen to my station, not their station. This seems pretty obvious.

    While they are nice, what I really want is a small player that I can embed into the firefox sidebar. Oooh! An extension would be priceless! Still, wonderful tool.

    What I have been thinking about for a while is the idea of a radio service which you could actually know what you were listening to... Radio stations are very inconsistent in telling what song they have just played or are playing... The idea you have is great, just mix it with XFM, display the song title, have it work just like it does -picking ones music type-, charge a monthly fee, and bingo! Maybe have a free version as well, but with commercials. I know this would be something more exciting than your average station out there, not just because I could pick my own music, but hear new stuff and not have to develop a scientific thesis to find out what band it was that just played. Just a thought. Anyway, keep up the great work!

    This is good, but what i'd really like is to be able to parse an artist through pandora, and get back a list of the similar artists. Any chance of this happening?
