I've Opened Pandora's Box!

So I have a brand new discovery to report.

Pandora is a FREE online radio station. You type in a song or artist you want to hear, it plays it then starts playing other songs it thinks you will enjoy on the "station" you have created. You can give each song a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" and it continues selecting songs for you based on your choices.

I have been listening to it on my headphones at work, and it fantastic, kind of like someone gave you an ipod loaded with your favorite music. It often will play songs from artists you know, but that you haven't necessarily heard because there were not released as singles.

So I can't really take credit for this discovery. Kudos to Jake, my former football mentee, he mentioned Pandora on his latest blog post about studying at Grainger. Seriously Jake, Pandora is so the new favorite thing of all the credit analysts at Busey Bank... Kudos Jacob!
