I started out on Pandora with trying to hear more of my favorites like early punk into new wave ie: Joy Division, Clash, New Order, etc. I still remember hearing "The Sex Pistols" in the late 70's and loving it immediately! I always liked music that was off the beaten path. So when I heard Grand Master Flash in the late 70's, I opened up to east coast hip-hop. My favorite music era is the mid to late 1970's to mid - late 1980's. However, there are newer groups that try to be like the "old" groups, ie: Interpol and The Killers that I really like. I can always hear my "old" favorite music from Joy Division, even though it makes me feel old as I have crossed the big 50 + by a few! I could listen to the old bands (70's and 80's) all day (and sometimes do). I am so diverse in my musical likes. I love old hip hop, new wave, Irish music, old crooners, Big Band and many more. I LOVE Pandora for getting me into new music like Interpol, Editors, She Wants Revenge! Check out my stations and learn about new bands.
