I’ve been playing around with customizable internet radio sites the past few days, specifically with Pandora and Last.fm, but I can’t decide which one I like better. Both have their pluses and minuses. Overall I find Pandora a bit cumbersome and often missing some of the artists I’d like to listen to, but it doesn’t just play the artists that I ask it to (which can be good and bad). What I like about Last.fm is that it is more than a radio site, in fact the radio function is just one feature. It also has tons of artists, especially ones on very small labels and that I like a lot, but I’ve noticed that some songs seem to get repeated more than others and that is a bit frustrating.
I’m relatively new to using these types of services/sites so I’d like to get some opinions from those who have more experience with them. What is your favorite customizable internet radio site and why?
