Pandora - Same experience?

...is terrible. It cycles through the same 5-6 songs per artist. I listen to artists who have hundreds of songs, and yet Pandora keeps serving up the same handful of songs every time I use the service (which is every day). Anyone else have the same experience?

yep. and the whole scientific reasoning behind why the selected each song for you is BS as well. they just use random artists from the same record label/same genre.

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

If you're willing to drop like $14 / month, go for Sirius XM. So much better than Pandora, and can still listen on your phone, computer, car, etc. Also plenty of other cheaper / free apps out there to mix things up, like Spotify and Slacker Radio. Use to be addicted to Pandora; now, I can recall the last time I used it.

The benefit of having an older car (E36 M3) is having a cassette player so I can buy a cheap iPod adapter for $10.

Here to learn and hopefully pass on some knowledge as well. SB if I helped.

Seriously might be my favorite car ever.

I personally no longer see the appeal of Pandora... I thought it was such a great idea when it came out, thought I was going to "discover" so many bands... It just recycles the same few songs from a few artists.

I also highly recommend Sirius, for the money you pay each month it is a really good deal. Most albums are about ten dollars, why not spend a little more per month and have access to a seemingly endless variety of music?

Auxiliary cables are like $2 though.

Check out Songza, i have it on my iPhone. It's similar to pandora but offers a little more variety, I think.
