Steve Sapka: ‘Have you tried Pandora? Pick all your favorite artists and it plays a mix for you – free!’
☞ I’m not sure Pandora is what I’d name a box I wanted people to open, but it’s most cool nonetheless. You set up ‘channels’ – I set up one for Tom Rush – and it offers music it thinks you will like by other artists as well. Like your own private commercial-free radio station with a DJ who knows just what you like. You can thumbs up or down its selections and it gets smarter. I liked Bob Dylan of course and Gordon Lightfoot – but who’s this David Bromberg? Ralph McTell? Well, turns out I liked them, too.
And all this can be streamed on your iPhone. So I set up a channel for high energy stuff to use exercising. And then some more channels – hey, this is free and easy, perfect for the challenging economic times ahead.
Quote of the Day
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.'~Martin Luther King, Jr.
