The Chairman Of The Board
I have a number of his songs checked as favorites on the Pandora.com internet music service. As luck would have it, one is playing as I write this.
Pandora has become my music service of choice. For many people, it’s free – if you consider ads an acceptable way of obtaining free service. I don’t, so I pay what is a nominal cost of $36 or $38 per year; no ads, continuous music shaped to my desire, and a few other perks that I really like.
You get what you pay for (a better quality of service) and you pay for what you get (pay more, get more). To my thrifty mind, why be a cheapskate when the value is so great for so little outlay? I don’t quite understand why more people don’t plunk down the $3/month for such a great product. My NPR station charges more (and I’m a member).
I’ve turned it off for the night, but it will play for much of the day tomorrow. I have some control over the selections, which is good: they add in a lot of music and artists I’ve never heard before and I can add them to my favorites, or just wait for them to come around again whenever that happens.
