Hi all,

Are you in need of constant musical stimulation between audition room submissions? Check out:

http://www.pandora.com

What I like best about this, and the reason why I am sharing it, is Pandora does not have commericals between tracks. At last I have qaulity radio without those pesky viagra commericals (*insert Nathan joke here*)

Enjoy because I sure am.

I've tried it, and it's nice. But I have so much in my iTunes library I seldom have time for it. :D

Unfortunately, for us living outside the US, viagra commercials are inevitable. The website accepts only US clients. I thought it was an April fool's day joke at first, but I'm afraid they really mean it.

Ah yes, another goodie that Uncle Sam is keeping for himself. America forever :P

I am quite fond of radioio Classical which can be accessed via iTunes. Sadly, when you hit one of the lengthy blocks of commercials you either rip off your headphones or go crazy... They are so irritating and obnoxious. It wasn't like that in the beginning but they had to do it in order to survive.

Fiddle sticks! Well you could always move to the US and you can switch places with me :wink: , as of now it is about 5 degrees celcius with 20-25 kph wind. :D Just a few days ago we received 4 inches of snow. Welcome to Wisconsin: where either you are drinking or driving through :lol:

Must be said that Hotspot Shield HAS drawbacks. So be aware that there ain't no such thing as a free lunch, as they say, even in the so called freeware software. See here for more details:

I downloaded the software and when it was "connected", I received lots of ads on top of the internet browser. I disconnected and the ads stopped appearing everytime I got to a new internet page.

A million thanks for this link! Pandora's been my constant companion for several days now. :D
