The weather here in London has been outrageous we have had today mild temperatures (by UK standards) 12c..........70mph winds........... and torrential rain.

So what is Pandora? It is a kind of Internet radio station where you make your own play list, this play list can be quit short if you like and the Pandora system based on your selection of music will try to select other music from a music library of several hundred thousand songs or artists for you based on your music style, this includes artists or bands from around the world you may never have heard of.
I was a bit suspicious as to how effective it would be when I heard about it but I have to say it works really well. New music is uploaded to Pandora every day, and you can change the direction of your stations by giving thumbs-up or thumbs-down to tracks you love or hate.
So all of you music lovers out there give it a try here.
All you have to do is register with them, make sure you use an American address when you register as they are not licenced outside the USA, I used the Whitehouse address and it was accepted.

The project was started 7 years ago by a group of musicians and music enthusiast and is still being developed, called the "Music Genome Project". I think when the word gets out this will be huge.
