Share your Pandora Stations
« on: December 17, 2006, 06:06:18 AM »
mouser suggested I ask everyone to share their favorite Pandora stations and explain exactly how to do this.


Method #1:

The easiest way to share a station, or all of them is with your Pandora rss feed.

Those that are using Open Pandora will have to actually visit the pandora.com site to do this.

Click on the 'your profile' button

Then right click the rss icon and copy the target:

Add that link to your favorite rss reader.

When it loads, it will give you a list of all your stations.

(this is from my AOLex browser)

The url of each one is what you share, to share that station with others. I can't explain how to get the individual urls from your reader, as every reader is different. (I can just right click an entry and copy the link in mine.)


Share the rss feed url you originally added to your reader, to share them all in one shot.

Method #2:

The alternative is to email yourself the stations individually...

First, start playing the station you wish to share.
Then click the share button and select 'email current station to a friend'.

Fill in your own email address and click 'share'.

Then go check your email for the link. Share that link.  :)



Here is my rss feed for all of my stations:

(add this to your rss reader)

Here is just my station of Christmas music that I just made for my daughter:

Jingle Bells Radio
(you can just click this to listen, no extra software needed)

Here are some of my favorites.  Keep in mind that Pandora inserts all kinds of songs that don't really meet the instructions it is given (just in case you might also like that, or because it doesn't really understand what you want).  But, more or less, you will get what you see -- and you can, of course, give thumbs up or down as you go, to refine the station more to your tastes.  Enjoy.

You all probably know this already, but you can bookmark to favorites particular songs, albums, artists so you can locate them whenever you want, rather than waiting for them to randomly appear later.  Each song also carries a picture of the cover, with link to amazon.com so you can buy it, see what other songs are on it, and what others sets the artist has made, and with whom.  Really an amazing resource.  PS my most reliable station (that is, consistently gives me the type of music I requested) is the instrumental jazz.  Check it out if you like that genre.

Pandora will not allow other people to do that with a shared station. Only the station creator is allowed to refine it. They will not allow people to turn your stations into something you don't like.  ;)
