Pandora Opens the Box
Posted by midiguru on January 11, 2009
Off and on I’ve been listening to music at pandora.com. I’ve been knocked out by the selection of tracks and the ability to define my own playlists in a way that includes good surprises.
Tonight, though, an audio commercial (for American Idol) popped up between Baroque tracks by Bach and Handel. Sorry, Pandora. You’re dead to me. I stopped listening to radio years ago because I couldn’t stand the commercials.
I don’t care how much money your CEO wants to spend on his trophy wife. I’m not letting your damn commercials into my brain. I’ve got a perfectly nice CD collection to listen to; I don’t need to be abused this way, and I’m not going to be.
