    iTunes Radio (And Others Like It)

    Upgraded my iPhone to iOS 7 a week or so ago. Tonight, as I was getting ready to cook dinner, I played around w/iTunes Radio and added a few stations to my list. (I'd actually tried doing it while in my van a few days ago, but couldn't really experiment, what with the driving and all.)

    This is pretty cool. I can see why people get hooked on Pandora and Rhapsody and such. Seems like a great way to get introduced to new music.

    Far too early to say how relevant its relationships are. I added a Kiss station and got "Love Gun" followed by..."Who Are You"? The Mike Keneally station played a couple artists connected to or similar to MK, but no MK music.

    I did have fun listening to the prog metal station. Some tasty stuff popped up. Going to have to play around with this a bit more.

    I have six stations set up - the three above, Zappa, Jim Jefferies, and...CARCASS!

    Anybody got anything to suggest?

    I haven't used it yet. I used to use Pandora at work until the dictatorship cracked down and banned music from the floor.

    Try "Slacker". Fewer ads than Pandora.

    I have a guilty pleasure of loving 80's hair metal, Motley Crue radio on Pandora is a pretty good one for that. Lots of Van Halen, Ratt, Ozzy, etc.
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
