Here are some recommended online music services that you might want to explore. It is now easy and cheap (in most cases) to get unlimited streaming music. Some of my favorites are commercial-free, underground internet radio, available directly through iTunes. Now you can hear music and programming from around the world, 24/7, without the static. You just have to watch your bandwidth, though. Some other downsides might include:
- occasional networking and connection issues
- you might not be able to access these services at work
- there might be annoying commercial interruptions
- possibly high monthly fees for the full service
I just go with the free service and filter out the rest. In many ways it is a music lovers paradise! Go enjoy it!
