Friday Fave: Pandora Radio

I actually have my husband to thank for this little discovery, and since I love it so much I thought I'd make it today's Friday Fave. It's called Pandora Radio, and basically it is your own personal radio station on the internet, for free. After you register, you are asked to create a station based on the artist of your choice. Then the site generates songs from artists similar to the one you chose, and all that's left to do is sit back and listen. You can create as many stations as you'd like, and it even allows you to skip a certain number of songs per hour. As each song plays, it displays a little blurb about the artist and song, and suggests other similar music.

Right now my favorite stations are Jason Mraz, Ingrid Michaelson, and Kelly Clarkson. Listening to Pandora is a great way to discover not-so-mainstream music, and I'm keeping a running list of new songs I love. And guess what I realized this morning? Pandora plays children's music as well, including the beloved Laurie Berkner, Justin Roberts, and more. What a great way to find new tunes for the classroom or music therapy.

That's it for today's "Freezing" Friday Faves. It is -8 degrees here today, and like yesterday, all schools in the area are closed. However, at the Hope School there is no such thing as a "snow day", since most of our students are residential. So for those of you reading from the comfort of your warm homes, enjoy your day off! And for everyone else, have a great Friday and an even better weekend. See you soon!
