Pandora Adds Genre Stations to Its Recommender Radio

Pandora Genre Stations
If you haven't yet familiarized yourself with Pandora, do so now. Just yesterday, Pandora expanded its recommendation system for the first time in years by allowing users to listen to ready-made, genre-specific stations. While these rather broadly defined stations should pretty well serve the more catholic-minded listener, we music snobs will probably stick to the old way. David Bowie and the Dead Boys lumped into the same default 'Classic Punk / New Wave' station? Modest Mouse included in the 'Alternative Country' sub-genre? One 'Heavy Metal' channel?! Tweet at us when we have a choice between 'Scandinavian Black Metal' and 'New Orleans Doom,' and we might check it out again.
