Wow, $24.99 / year for comercial-free content is not bad at all. Currently paying twice that for an Internet station.

Since it is going to work across all devices I might look into that. I've been using Pandora but the near constant need to do thumbs up thumbs down ratings is annoying.

Guess I will be doing some calculations to work out what that would do to my bandwidth. Probably not much since I would be most likely to use it on my iPad or at home on the Mac

Must be a "real good" internet station if you're paying $50 a year for it. I've scanned through most of the radio stations available on iTunes and I'm not impressed. Very few appeal to me and the same holds true for "Live 365 Internet Radio". I'd rather spend the money for the content that's on Sirius Satellite Radio. But that's just me...

I can deal with the ads (I do on Spotify, iHeartRadio, FM radio and Pandora)...just as long as it's not a long drawn out two minutes of it back to back (Spotify is notorious for this, mostly really annoying ads; iHR does the ads like you might hear on an FM radio program - about 3.5 minutes of it). I'd rather have one 1-min. long ad or two 30-sec. long ads rather than brief 15 second, 30 second and 1 minute ads strung together.

Perhaps it's just mindless thinking.

LOL...It's uncanny how perfect it is (that is, matches my tastes). But yeah, I'm a cheap *bleeper* and I'm the last one to pay for something like this...but I have.

Well i have iTunes Match, so will be Add free for me, but what i got from the Keynote Charlie is that this in Mavericks will be a completely revamped Radio experience, as i admit nothing there interests me now, except some Trance stations that i listen to, when in that mood, but as music for today, its basically useless . . . .

EDIT : Im really, really Pee'd Off big time. Look at the image below and then iRadio (Us Only) WHAT THE @#$# . . . . . Im gutted and not happy at all about this
