Hey all –

We’re having Pandora town-halls in Denver and Atlanta next week. If you’re in one of those cities and haven’t gotten your email invite, send a note to ‘tour@pandora.com’ and we’ll put you on the list.

Town halls are a big part of what Pandora is about. They continue to be wonderful opportunities for us meet and communicate directly with listeners.

We love feedback and people at Pandora events often weigh in on how Pandora should look in the future. In addition, I talk a bit about some company history, as well as a look under the hood of the music genome, and our latest thinking about the future. The questions and discussions always cover a wide range of topics – from how the music genome project works, to licensing, to the latest device updates. Everything is fair game!

So if you’re in Denver or Atlanta next week I hope you’ll come and hang and chat for an hour and a bit, that’s usually how long the town halls last. And if you’re in another city and think it is time we had a town hall there, let us know by emailing ‘tour@pandora.com,’ and we’ll add it to the list!

Details below about Denver and Atlanta. See you soon!

-Tim (Founder)

    My favorite singer on Pandora is Holly Near, who has a beautiful expressive voice and writes songs celebrating family, childhood, motherhood, peace, justice, and respect for all mankind. In her Pandora bio, the editors described her as a "radical left-wing lesbian feminist." Since when is it left-wing radicalism to write and sing beautiful music for peace? And why is every other musician's sexual orientations not noted in his or her bio? Come on, Pandora, you can do better than this slanted and judgmental language.

    Hey there. I photographed Tim and the Pandora employees 3 years ago. The images were just republished by Fortune magazine and I've posted a few out takes on my site. Go here to check em out. http://www.tellmewherethisis.com/ Also, how do I send a link to Tim and the employees so they can check them out?

    I just discovered Pandora and was going to link to it but sadly there is none of my kind of music//songs. I am into anime and apparently they do not know what that is here at Pandora. If I don't find something I like here very soon I will just withdraw until Pandora finds some for me. Sayonara for now- keimanzero the Scionof Anime aka K&K

    I love Pandora. Can't wait for you to have a New York City town hall! If there is one thing I wish is that you gave the ability to ban an entire artist's catalog. there are times based on things I like, i get a plethora of songs from an artist that I don't care for, but I constantly have to "thumb down" the individual songs. By allowing to ban an artist as well as like an artist, the algorithm could be even better at suggesting songs.

    Sites like this make me appreciate music more. But is there any way to rein in the ads?

    Here is a good suggestion that I wish will get to somebody important. The new plasma tv's that have the Pandora app installed in them are great, but with one major flaw. Their is no screen saver option. Which if you know about plasmas they tend to get burned by images that are stagnant for an extended period of time. Like that image that is on when pandora is running. A simple option of having a screen saver, or even adds for that matter would be safer to have playing on the tv. I love my pandora and I hope I will be able to listened to in one day though my tv without being scared of ruining it.

    I have LOVED pandora for a while - 2 years. I just discovered it for kid music. This morning we were listening to a station that I selected by using Veggietales as my search. They love giving thumbs up and thumbs down - even my 3 year old gets into it! Today after a commercial, my 6 year old asked me what porn was....He had heard the commercial for FAMILY JEWELS on A and E...There has to be some way to filter what commercials or least what words are used on the "Kid stations!"
