Wow! What an informative post. The reason I listen to Pandora, besides it’s free, is that it reminds me of old fashion radio. I don’t mind the commercials because they have been a part of my life since I started listening to the radio 60 years ago. Convincing me the internet has made life easier needs to read your post. Life today is difficult for an analogue sole! Great post, but for me, a little depressing.
