Pandora.com – growing quietly…

If you like Pandora.com and want to know more about its roots, it’s worth checking out a MarketWatch article about the start-up. Interesting to note that CEO Tim Westergren identifies Clear Channel Communications as their main competitor, whereas most listeners would have been thinking about the web 2.0 music services such as last.fm and slacker.com.

I tend to agree that Clear Channel are “the owner and operator of many bland, mainstream radio stations” and would also add that regardless of listening tastes, their web-sites are abysmal and Mac / Safari unfriendly, with pop-up windows and plug-ins galore. If you want to time-shift these stations, use iRecordMusic… and of course, if you want a souped-up Pandora.com experience, check out PandoraJam 🙂
