Fact: Pandora is not radio.
Fact: Radio is not what it needs to be in order to gain and hold a growing number of listeners.
Conjecture: Media pays too much/too little for the product (music) it presents.

It doesn't look like Pink Floyd or most other bands know math. Here's a great breakdown that explains what they are really getting paid.

Mostly it seems like Pandora is doing a terrible job at PR.

Pandora is here, and making quite the impression. Where else can you get a music experience specialized to you, and your interests. I work in FM Broadcasting, and you look at the market demographic when you choose a format, but you will NEVER reach everyone. Pandora has the power to reach every person with internet and a computer. It is safe to assume that people in "Radio" are mad simply because they didn't think of something like Pandora first. I agree that it isn't radio. There are no segues

Pandora is not radio. To let that go unchallenged is a weird kind of Orwellian or Chomksy-esk perversion of terms. Allowing such to be said without making the proper distinction is tacitly granting a kind of undeserved legitimacy to the non-radio entity.

A rather kind and generous public response from Pandora. If what Pandora says is true, it raises the question of why members of Pink Floyd would publish such a misleading oped. Are they deliberately shilling for the RIAA? Or did they just not bother to get their facts straight before publishing? Neither scenario reflects well on them. Not that they likely care. They're sitting pretty now thanks to the RIAA back in the day. So they can publish whatever they damn well please. It's all publicity.
