Yeah I saw that a couple of years ago. Had it bookmarked and everything but I stopped going because it was so slow to load, my god.

I'll have to check it once again then! Thanks for reminding me! :D

A coupla years ago Pandora really creeped me out.

I accidentally found the site, and lo and behold there were a bunch of tunes that are as obscure as they come — jazz recorded in the 1920s by the same orchestras, some of those as obscure 85 years ago as they are now, that reside inside my computer.

I couldn't figure it out. Pandora had to have set a cookie, or something like it, but I never found it.

Turns out that months before, a relative had found the site, so there were no ghosts of dead orchestra leaders in the machine, after all. I never found the cookie or whatever it was that Pandora had planted.

But the breadth of the music that site has is amazing.

That's a bummer, christm. I wonder if you simply type in a zip code, like for instance for New York city, will it look to see i you really are from that place or let you in anyway? Hmm. :\

That's awesome. One of my friends actually showed me that site a while ago, but I forgot what it was called. So thanks for posting it on here. :)
