Don't forget to give each song a thumbs up or thumbs down to further tailor the station to your liking.

Yep, I use the up/down on the actual record label, or click the "Guide Me" to tailor the direction.

Right now I have the following stations setup:

Oldies 50's 60's
Alternative
Country
Jazz/Blues
Metal
Classic Rock

I started by adding some of my favorites from each category by clicking the down arrow on each station, pretty cool...

I take it nobody here likes www.bluebeat.com or what? They have been doing it forever and have everything you could ask for including high bit rates.

Oh great, now my wife is getting into this stuff. She had me create a Country channel, see above. Now she has me creating a "Love Songs" channel....no playing "Sometimes When We Touch" by Dan Hill......

Where's the classical music? Pandora sucks! Okay, just kidding, but when I'm at the computer I generally make use of this site , which is a compilation of classical stations all over the world(of varying quality, of course)and might be of interest.

bluebeat is a different animal....it does not seem to create playlists on the fly according to your tastes in music.

Huh? BlueBeat let's you listen to a specific genre of music which is exactly what this does but at a lower bit rate.

If I'm missing something here let me know. I input 7 bands and not one of them played due to license agreements. BlueBeat, played them all. Granted my taste is out in left field but the point is still valid.

That's just it...bluebeat is pre-defined. Pandora defines the set based on criteria on the song or artist you give it....it does not necessarily play that particular artist, and the playlist is built on the fly.

Here is what they do:
