muSic in the bAckgrouNd

I’m sitting at the computer proofreading my son-in-law’s master’s thesis. It could be kind of boring – no offense Winston : ) I mean it’s a thesis on teaching math. Actually I'm very engaged and interested, because I’m on the hunt to find mistakes and fix them, one of my favorite things to do. But what’s making the morning really pleasant is the music coming out of my computer. Here, I’ll let Becky tell you about it...

Post from Becky's blog titled Sick of My Ipod: "The shuffle gods have not been good to me for a very long time. My music is old and outdated. Today I discovered Pandora. Go check it out! Jason Myles Goss is playing right now and I like it!"

So I checked out Pandora and it's great. It has tons of cool features to experiment with later. You enter one song or artist you like and it automatically gives you a whole playlist of similar music.

Now, you have to give my ‘radio station’ a try. I typed in Steve Tyrell and up came the best music playlist. Song after song by Steve Tyrell, Michael Buble, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra (be sure to find this song somewhere and listen to it - "I've Got You Under My Skin - duet with Frank and Bono). Well, gotta get back to 'summative assessment' and other math teaching tools.

I'll thank Becky for you for the Pandora recommendation. btw - who's Jason Myles Goss???

Being the almost 50 year old computer idiot that I am. . . .
So, you just open it and listen like a radio from your computer? or do you add songs to your playlist. But awesome songs!

I've don't know Jason Myles Goss, but at the moment he was on and it was good music.

Yes Eileen you just go to pandora.com and enter one song you like - then it automatically creates a playlist based on that one song.
