The internet radio service Pandora is hosting listener events in Melbourne and Sydney to welcome users to the fold.
Tim Westergren, founder of Pandora, has sent an email out to Aussie users outlining two open events for listeners to meet and greet the team, as well as give the company a chance to hear feedback about local listening habits. The events will be held at the Melbourne Town Hall on Tuesday, December 11 at 6.30pm, and in Sydney at the Establishment Ballroom on Wednesday, December 12 at 6.30pm. To RSVP, users will need to respond to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the guests attending and your chosen city.
Pandora opened up its box (sorry, couldn't resist) to Australian users in June this year, after a long period of the service being geo-blocked for the local audience.
Pandora is now one of severalvying for your attention in Australia. Unlike many other services though, Pandora works on the basis of programming radio stations that cater to your taste, rather than having to select individual tracks or albums. Localised versions of the Android and iOS apps have not yet been made available.
