Music at work

    For those who like to listen to music while at work, do you bring your iPod or listen online?

    I used to listen to XM online, but apparently, we ended our subscription not long ago, so says the wife. So I've been listening to Free Napster. Pretty cool site. Costs to download, of course, but free to listen, which is perfect at work.

    What other sites do you guys and gals use for music at work?

    Edit: Figures. You only get 25 free songs per month on the Napster site. $5 for unlimited. Dammit.

    It's fantastic, and free. Give it a try.

    Here's where work steps in.....apparently, the Govt doesn't like Pandorra. Tried it. Blocked. Several sites are like that. Napster, thankfully, isn't blocked. It may be worth the $5 a month. Maybe.

    Edit: Same with slacker. Not sure why it blocks some sites and not others. Seems random and irritating.

    Try a streaming version on a website.

    91X in San Diego is very good as is WNRN in Virginia if you like the Death Cab for Cutie style of music.

    Yeah. I've tried JFK, but the player hasn't been working very well lately. I may try again in the morning.

    Yahoo music, which you can customize: http://new.music.yahoo.com/

    Live365.com, which is kind of a set-up-your-own-station site: http://www.live365.com/index.live

    Lots of links thru AOL music (one well-known one is Spinner.com): http://music.aol.com/radioguide/bb

    I like the Yahoo! one. You only get 25 free plays, though. Haven't tried the others yet. Thanks for the links!

    I do the Live 365 thing. Some good stations in there. We can't get Pandora in Canuckistan for some stupid fucking reason. Listen to WWOZ and Texas Rebel Radio if I'm in the mood.

    Flycast, baby. Aggregates a whole shitload of 'net radio stations. Works on a smartphone and on a PC or Mac with the Adobe Air runtime.
