The last I heard, Pandora was losing money. But that can change; or else
it may end up in the hands of the record companies, who can afford to
operate it at a loss in exchange for its promotional value.
Radio needs to get back into show business. The entertainment value of a
radio station has to be more than just music; otherwise, the Pandoras of
the world will eventually eat its lunch.
