Now, things have changed. It's no longer "unique", and in my opinion... has gone against it's original core values. In short, it has lost it's "integrity"... and it is a very sad day indeed. I didn't mind seeing visual ads, but audio ads are just going too far. What separates it from regular radio now? And I'm sure the frequency of the audio ads will just escalate from now on. I revised my 5-star rating to 3-stars. By the way, there are other comparable Internet radio stations out there that run audio ads. One of them is www.slacker.com. Pandora was number #1 on my list because it was "audio ad free"... now it's just like the rest of them :(
