    Internet Radio

    This Bear listens to internet radio. I tend to bounce around a bit, some days enjoying oldies, other days rocking to classic rock, other days catching some talk radio. There are a ton of choices available. Here are some of my favorites.....

    Hy Lit Radio - Oldies mixed with old-school radio station jingles. Boss!
    AOL Oldies - 40s
    AOL Oldies - 50s
    AOL Oldies - 60s
    Radio Tower - Loads of available stations
    Pandora - Often tune this in at the work office....I have about 20 stations

    How about you? What say you?

    Pandora - only at work and only occasionally. I can't slack effectively when listening to music.

    Pandora or just plug the iPod into the speakers.

    I used to listen to Pandora until it was blocked. It took too much bandwidth. I listened to I heart Radio and Grooveshark but now I just listen to local radio. Or Christmas music...

    I listened to Pandora until they wanted to charge me. Now I listen to Creamy Radio - I like hearing new Americana and folksy bands anyway.

    Christmas music already? Hink, you have thrown your lot in with all who conspire to make me lose my MIND! (Including Mrs. Ursus, who began the Christmas music thing yesterday....)

    I tend to listen to Pandora on my Android phone (there is no 40 hour listening limit per month on the droid app), and to Radio Paradise at the office.

    I would start earlier, but Mrs. Hink doesn't allow it prior to her birthday.... so I wait...

    I ponied up and subscribed to Pandora. I listen it at work, in gym on my blackberry and occasionally at home.

    Pandora has its appeal, but I prefer good old fashioned programmed radio, where I can discover something new without much effort on my own.

    My favorite Internet radio station is Radio Paradise, as [b]SGB[/b mentioned above. From Wikipedia:

    Radio Paradise is a listener-sponsored Internet radio station that identifies itself as an "eclectic online rock radio" station. The channel differs from most FM channels and other Internet stations in that the music played is not limited to a specific genre, instead representing great variety. Radio Paradise plays different styles of pop and rock music, but occasionally other genres from jazz to classical to electronic music and world music. All of the styles are DJ-mixed.
    Frequence Terre, an Internet radio station from France with a format that I describe as "soft eclectic coffeehouse", is my falling asleep station.

    What are some odd Internet radio stations? Mission Control has to be up there; it's new age/ambient music mixed with NASA space mission audio.
