The biggest downside to Pandora is that it plays 30 second commercials every 5-6 songs. An online commercial-free option is Grooveshark.com, where I can create my own playlist from songs I find on a search. This is great if I want to listen to only one or two bands at a time. Grooveshark also has a radio option for more listening variety, but the like/dislike options don't seem to personalize the music as well as Pandora.
Our recent favorite artist on either radio site is Laurie Berkner. Her silly, quirky lyrics and catchy tunes are favorites among kids, and totally bearable- even quite enjoyable- for adults. Most days, I connect my laptop to our stereo so we can listen to an internet radio site on surround sound. Adding music to our day makes chores more enjoyable, and of course, I can't help but smile when I see Tye dance to the music. Internet listening sites keep us dancing for free.
