Pandora is my favorite service.. I loved it on android and really love it on WP being ad free.

Slacker is the best all around solution, but people are cheap bastards and Pandora is free. I spend $35 a month just on music app subscriptions WORTH EVERY PENNY. And I've tried pretty much all the US market music services, pandora is pretty bad....

Two hundred million?! I'm sure that's an overstatement of reality. That's a 65% (give or take) adoption rate for the entire country including folks who'd never consider opening an account.

I stopped listening to Pandora about 4-5 years ago because I wanted more control (it's also why I don't do Apple)
