Virtually Back On Air

I was newly introduced to an old Internet service last night. I’d never found Internet radio to be all that interesting in the past, especially over a 56K connection, but now that broadband is on the way, I thought I should check this out.
Launchcast allows you to set up your own Internet radio station, based on your preferences. The best thing is that you don’t necessarily specify each and every song, you just give it a rough idea of what you’re into, and it uses the recommendations of other people like you to suggest some other stuff you might be into. Already I’ve found 3 songs today which warrant further investigation. It’s like having direct access to your own program manager. You can also let the system know as you go whether each song is any good, and that will further refine your future listening.
It’s one of these services which has been around for a while, but I’ve only just caught on.
If you’re interested, you can listen to my station, and my particular/peculiar tastes right here. Let me know if you’ve got your own, too!
