 When we first launched Pandora Stories, we knew that we’d created a truly unique new kind of audio entertainment. After all, Pandora Stories combine the storytelling possibilities of podcasts with the emotional power of music playlists like nothing before.

But we’ve been completely blown away by how quickly Pandora Stories have caught on with listeners and creators.

How quickly? Today, we’re announcing that we’ve reached our 1000th Pandora Story, and we’re celebrating with a special “greatest hits” of favorite moments with notable artists from some of our most popular Stories.

Available starting today, Pandora Stories: The Greatest Hits includes anecdotes, insights, and (of course) stories from some of music’s biggest and most compelling stars including Taylor SwiftLizzoJohn LegendFKA twigsTim McGrawStingMadonnaSnoop DoggKaty PerryMarc Anthony, and many more.

I really liked Olivia Wilde and her take on Pandora's pop quiz. Her song she picked "Only Time" by Enya, it has become iconic with 9/11/01. Perhaps many people do not realize this about the song. CNN played that song the night of 9/11/01. "Only Time" is played every year during the 9/11/01 tribute. I also have this song on my personal playlist. Thanks for sharing Pandora. Take care and stay safe.
