A friend of mine and fellow Pandora-er introduced me to Vancouver Sleep Clinic , and I first did my research through Pandora.

I discovered one of my favorite bands, The Kills, on Pandora years ago! Their track Black Balloon played on my Santigold station. It's still my favorite song of theirs to this day ❤️

Auto-Play is one of Pandora's greatest features. I'll wake up with an ear-worm and want to quickly play the song; if I walk away, Pandora will keep playing similar tracks and start in auto-play, which I believe is where true discovery occurs. Our stations can get repetitive with everything we like, but they don't necessarily introduce us to new various artists.

I discovered Heartless Bas*ards "Only For You" while in auto-play of Alabama Shakes. They are just one of many bands you won't hear on the radio, which is why Pandora is the place to listen.

Love this question. I discovered quite a few artists while listening to Pandora stations over the years, I'm grateful for that. Similar to @FoxHan13 I have a couple of favorites that stand out for me (and listen to):

Great suggestion, @deardzzz! Autoplay is a really cool feature, keeps the music going. I love modes - this helps me discover music that I might not come across while listening to my normal stations.

@Pandora I love the fact that you can collect stations from your favorite music artists, and you can play those stations in shuffle mode. I believe I have nearly 200 stations collected in my personal collection. Some stations have as few as 4 songs and some have over 20 to 30. Plus you can add other songs to any station that you collected. 

I also discovered music artist that I have never heard of as well as music genre I have never heard until I became a Pandora customer. 

Twisted Highway  by Erica Wennerstrom, Be Here To Love Me by Erica Wennerstrom. This music artist has only 11 songs in Pandora's library. When I first discovered her she only had 32 monthly listeners, now I believe she is over 500. @deardzzz mentioned the band Heartless Bast*rds quite ironic due to the fact that Erica Wennerstrom was the lead singer for that band.  And @AlyssaPandora introduced me to Freya Riding who has become one of my personal favorites. Lost Without You  by Freya Ridings, You Mean The World To Me  by Freya Ridings. I also discovered Minipop, Fluke, and several other artists that I would have never heard of if it had not been for @Pandora. As a bonus to me I have collected all of my favorite music artist music, and that is of course Jewel. 

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.

Wanted to say that when I saw the description "Deep Cuts" my first thought was oh yeah, ho-hum..

Then I heard a song that I haven't heard since it was originally on the radio in the late 60s!!! HOLY MOLEY YOU MEANT IT!!!

"Shambala" by Three Dog Night 

That's IT!!!! I'm now a lifetime member and I couldn't subscribe fast enough
