Updated on June 19, 2013

If you would like to listen to free internet radio and music your way then you may want to check out Pandora Internet Radio. This is truly an advancement in the way music is delivered across the internet. You can register for a free account and start listening to music by creating your own custom music channels. Once you have created an account, you can listen to through your free music account online. Then the fun starts. Create a few or a lot of custom music channels either by your favorite artist or favorite song. The Pandora technology kicks in gear and delivers songs for your listening pleasure based upon the selected channel's criteria. The Music Genome Project is responsible for the technology and intelligence that searches their databases of songs to develop your songlist that will keep delivering song after song. It is designed to play the music that you like to hear.

Once you have entered into your account area you are ready to create your own music channels, which is easy to do. Click on the link that says 'Create a New Station', then type in your selection of 'Artist' or 'Song' then click 'create'. That is it. Pandora will then create your custom music channel and serve up songs based around your selection. It will not just play songs by your selected artist, instead it will play songs by that artist, as well as other songs that are in the same genre and tone. I must say, it is a pleasure to use, I am listening to Pandora free internet radio as I am creating this article. Free Internet Radio

When you first start using this free streaming online radio music it is a fun process to learn how it works and to discover what types of different music artists and songs that the technology from the Music Genome Project will serve up. While you are listening, you can explore more information about the music and about the artist which is fascinating. Pandora internet radio is free for a certain number of playtime hours each month. They also have a premium membership for those that play the music more than the monthly allotment.

I must admit my experience using this service has been a good one overall. One thing that is missing that would make it a big hit with me would be the ability to select and play the actual songs that I would like to hear. But so far, unless I just have not found how to do it, you do not select the actual song. The Pandora technology pulls up songs based on its criteria. Still overall, very nice indeed.

There are other competitors in the internet music delivery marketplace like Jango, Grooveshark and Rhapsody, but have not tried them yet.
