  • Name? Timmie
  • Where you're from? Some Random Graveyard (I joined Pandora when I was 12, almost 10 years ago, so I'm just going to keep up with the story my angsty pre-teen self put in my bio then). 
  • What your favorite genre of music is? Rock, metal, and stuff like that
  • What you're currently listening to? Pet by A Perfect Circle 
  • A favorite feature of the Pandora service? Thumbprint Radio

Honestly haven't used Pandora for the past few years, but its cool to see how things have changed. I mainly just came back to see my old playlists and cringe, while I make my friends join me in singing emo songs from our childhood.

My name is christina im from flagstaff arizona and my favorite genre of music is 80s currently im listening to the pet shop boys... what can i say they are my favorite haha. Oh and im 17

@Christina173 the 80's are truly one of the best if not the best decade for music. It is still very popular today, and as you stated, you are 17 and you love the 80's so nothing more to add to that. And nice to meet you as well. If you ever have any music requests that you would like to see posted, I curate the GSOTD (Genre Songs Of The Day) (Clean Only) post and playlist. Just go to that post and make your request. You will also find the link to the playlist at the beginning of the post. Take care and stay safe.

Thank you so very much! I love Pandora! It is truly awesome! I recommend
Pandora over any other music station. Thank you Pandora for being so great!

Opening Act
  1. Name?  I go by Kat
  2. Where I'm from?  Boston, MA, in the USA
  3. Favorite genre of music? "It varies from moment to moment." of my favorite movie quotes, and it fits here. I can generally find something to like in all genres, and I often go off on kicks where I will listen to one genre almost exclusively for a few days...or up to several weeks.  Looking back to the time when I first discovered my ability to choose what kind of music I listen to (the tween years), I notice most of it tends to be goth or non-American folk or traditional music.
  4. Currently listening to? For the last several months, I have been listening to Viking inspired rock and folk music, as well as medieval-style rock or bard-style songs.  Think stuff you'd find being played at a Renaissance Faire alternating with heavy metal.  Just to mix things up and keep me on my own toes, I'll occasionally set myself a playlist of Visual Kei and J-pop bands.
  5. Favorite feature of Pandora's service?  That it can "learn" what I like...leading me to find new, similar music to stuff I like much more easily.  I have also set up different stations based on my moods, and so far, each station has managed to "learn" not to play heavy metal on my pop station, or rap on my Celtic/Irish station. It can be really jarring to switch moods like that.

I'm still playing around with making stations, but I love it so far.  Keep up the great work!

@Xenakat13 I can relate - my mood and how I'm feeling definitely dictates what type of music I listen to.

My name is Krysti! I'm from born in Illinois but raised since I was 6 months in Arkansas. My favorite genre of music is all kinds. It doesn't matter. I love all music. I'm currently listening to three days grace. Favorite Pandora service would be the downloading. I love how I can download the music that I love. Which is all. So just imagen how much music I'll be able to have...

@krystimassie21 The ability to download content for offline mode is definitely one of my favorite features as well.

It comes in handy when you don't have any service.

Thanks for sharing, and hope we continue to see you around some more! ๐Ÿ˜

Hi! Iโ€™m Greg Allen.

I'm originally from Toledo, Ohio then 21 years in Chicago (dance club heaven!) and now the last 7 years in Nashville, TN.

My musical tastes are extremely eclectic! I started out with Tommy James and the Shondells. Other favorite groups along the way were ELO, Black Sabbath, Yes.

In 1980, I was exposed to Funk at Kent State University and I was in LOVE! For the next 10 years, I went to countless Toledo dance clubs, bought funk singles and 12" singles. My favorite funk groups were, #1 Zapp and Roger, then The Gap Band and Midnight Star. Others that registered were The Deele, Alexander Oโ€™Neal, The Dramatics (Live it up! a hard to find record now, I think), SOS Band, Cherrelle, ABC (The Look of Love), Mtume, Evelyn Champagne King, Cheryl Lynn, Klymaxx, Pebbles, One Way, Spyder D, WHodini, Cameo, LL Cool J and Kool Moe Dee (the Wild Wild West). Not to mention Madonna and the Pet Shop Boys.

When  got to Chicago, it was the early 90s and I remember hearing my first Eurodance tune. I was enthralled. The group was Culture Beat and favorites are 'I like You', 'Take Me Away', 'Mr. Vain', 'Crying in the rain'. I grew to love Eurodance groups such as Corona, Le Click, Le Bouche, Snap!, Captain Hollywood, Scatman John, Rednex, Haddaway and on and on.

My next musical epiphany occurred in Chicago while at the huge Tower records when I discovered a very important album to me in Paul van Dykโ€™s 'The Politics of Dancing'. That exposed me to 4 Strings. Van Dyk is still my favorite Trance DJ but I also like Armin van Buuren (Burned with Desire), Markus Schulz, Kaskade.

I also got into Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and other pioneering electronic groups such as Kraftwerk. I even wrote a 2008 book called, 'Klaus Schulze: Electronic music Legend' which is pushing the 1000 mark in sales.

After COVID hit in March of 2020, I decided to make some music but I didnโ€™t want to pull over my synthesizer to the couch area, which was so crowded. So, I set out in Garageband and quick realized it was a beat makers heaven! I could create funk, house and trance mixed with funk, I made a reggae song (reggae is another huge love of mine with favorites Steel Pulse and Burning Spear. I discovered Cali Roots Riddim by Collie Buddz not too long ago and for a long time reggae lover, it captures so much of what I love about reggae. One of my most important reggae discoveries ever!!!

So I worked about a year, most every day, on beat oriented songs, a little chill and the reggae song. The longest I spent was 2 months on one song.

The album is Riding the Beat by Greg Allen and I also personally stocked my radio station with about 150 songs in the dance vein. The fun thing is that Pandora taught me a lot of new, fascinating songs! I also just finished a playlist of 175 dance music songs called 'Greg Allenโ€™s Best of Dance Music'.

I hope youโ€™ll give my first dance music album (I did an ambient album previously) a listen and my Playlist radio station will show you what makes me tick, dance music-wise.

Thanks, Greg
