Radio? Radio?? Really??? I don't know anyone -- anyone -- that listens to conventional radio anymore. Demographics? Mine is 40 to 50 somethings who grew up on R&R and have invested our expendable income in every music media since the 45. Only important factor bout us - we have money. Secondary demo is my kids. 13 to 22. Male, female. All of em and their friends listen to music like crazy. But none of em, nor their friends, listen to radio. Nada, none, not a one. All of us instead listen to, in varying proportions -- Sirius XM, or straight internet radio (like Radio Paradise!) or Pandora, or our iTunes, or our Rhapsody, our you name it. But radio? Forget it.

Pandora is so full of c--p. And this was wheeled out just in time so that Clear Channel can claim they need to own every radio station in LA to compete with
this non-radio fiction.

Remember Pandora is NOT RADIO. It is a wanna be juke box, that has a business model that leads to the
poor house. I trust the Sound Exchange will now send them a bill for millions of dollars for royalties.

Despite Bob Pittman stating that Pandora isn't "really radio", it is if the listener preceives it as that and listens to it instead of terrestial radio.

Pandora is trading at $8.57 a share, and they aren't making a profit yet. They'll have to start selling a lot of adds and adding more and more commercials to become profitable.

And when Pandora adds more and more commercial units, some of their listeners will go to other services.
