Re: [F_minor] GG and pandora radio

Thanks Fred - I almost canceled my Pandora account in protest when I read your response - I went to one of their links explaining their "broadcast" rights. Pandora pays royalties, based on
the advertisement revenues, so that we as listeners may enjoy "free radio". Pandora does have
several of Glenn's recordings (so they claim for the rest of my fellow USA Gouldians). If the Salvation Army and the Toronto Humane Society still collects royalties via the GG Estate, then fine with me.

Alas for a year or so I enjoyed Pandora while here at work and then it was taken off the air for all non-American's.  They have a way of deciphering everyone's internet address and their database can tell them instantly if you are non-resident.  The simple skinny on this story is that the recording industry had negotiated the rights to broadcast all that treasure trove of music over the internet - for free - but ONLY for US residents.  Hence, we here in Canada are now effectively blocked from Pandora and sadly so.  There is a wonderful bunch of other internet based radio stations that I listen to and so I'm never without the music I love.

Subject: [F_minor] GG and pandora radio

Hello Everyone!
If you want Internet radio emphasizing music performed by Glenn Gould, then go to
http://www.pandora.com and set up an account. You can access this Internet station even
on your cell phones, etc. You most likely will get performances by other artists as well. Right now I created
a Glenn Gould radio station. Pandora's database seems to have only three recordings by GG (Goldberg Variations,
Italian Concerto, Contemporary Music). Maybe, we can inform Pandora to get all of GG's recordings (I will try and
check that option).
