Free Internet Radio

I'm really unimpressed with Yahoo's Launchast. Their motto is "music that listens to you" but the ratings have no effect on what is actually played. How do I know? Because songs that I rate "Never Play Again" come up consistently. In fact I have noticed a looping playlist which means that a "Can't Get Enough" rating on an Album has no effect on what is played either.

As soon as I decided to pay for the commercial free version, a friend came over and introduced me to Pandora. Their motto: "It's a new kind of radio - stations that polay only music you like"

Are they any better at playing more of a variety and respecting your ratings? I don't know yet, but it's free and it was created from the Music Genome Project. "Free" never lasts long, so get it while you can.
