I listen to Pandora all the time. My main channel is called Lumps Random Radio, it contains an eclectic mix of styles. From Classical to Heavy Metal, from New Age to Electronic, from Game and Movie Soundtracks to Celtic Music and everything in between including blends (there are some genres of music I do not listen to such as Rap and R&B and a few others but not many). Yesterday I happened to notice the ads that where showing in my Pandora window.
Metallica on the album Kill 'Em All. Next to this are ads for Feeding your craving for CUTENESS (with an incredibly pink dress) and for Free Knitting Patterns and JUST FABULOUS high heel shoes. Now ignoring the fact that I am male, the juxtaposition of these kinds of ads with a Metallica song is just bad programing for associating ads with music. My mother noted a similar poor juxtaposition of song and ad in her post Bluegrass and Tony Bennett?
As a side note I am in fact listening to Pandora right now and since I started this post I have had a song from The Lord of The Rings soundtrack, a Celtic piece by the McDades, A track from the recent Star Trek sountrack, and trance songs from Thomas Newman, Sophie Sugar on an Armin Van Buuren album, and a remix of a song by Paul Van Dyk. My channel is on a trancy trend at the moment.
If anyone is interested in listening to my channel I am more than happy to share it.
