Found this.... it is brilliant in its simplicity and enjoyment...

Create your own Radio Stations... just pop in the name of your fave song or artist... and bobs yer uncle... your own radio station based on what you like... SUPERB!!

BAJR... not just for bad archaeology ! Wink

Heres where it starts:

Quote:quote:The Music Genome Project

On January 6, 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever.

Together we set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.

Over the past 6 years, we've carefully listened to the songs of over 10,000 different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day as we endeavor to include all the great new stuff coming out of studios, clubs and garages around the world.

It has been quite an adventure, you could say a little crazy - but now that we've created this extraordinary collection of music analysis, we think we can help be your guide as you explore your favorite parts of the music universe.

We hope you enjoy the journey.

You have to be a US resident to actually have an account on Pandora - I used to use launchcast for something similar - which got taken over by yahoo. Unfortunately my yahoo account was hacked and I lost it!

You don't need to be a US resident at all Lucy78green. Just supply a borrowed zip code and address and it works fine.

Not really a 'pot person'.
