Default Streaming audio, who do you love?

I spent a lot of time listening to DI.FM until they got all weird with the memberships and the advertizing, now I'm all about the SOMA.FM out of SF. Zero advertizing and it plays through the browser so no obnoxious 3rd party "players" required. I've usually got the "Groove Salad" station running at work or in the garage while I'm breaking things working on the car so I have some downtempo chillout background noise.

SomaFM: Commercial-free, Listener-supported Radio

What are you people listening to?

Been using the Google music system. Few bucks, but I stream it to the ST works. Plus works on all my devices.

I can't lie, Spotify has always been my go to. 5 bucks a month for premium is where it's at (perks of being a college student).

Most of the time you'll catch me with some punk rock/ska/reggae music on. Less than jake, reel big fish, ballyhoo.

I've been using Songza on and off. I've discovered a lot of new music that I wouldn't have otherwise. I dislike that Google bought them out so I'm keeping my eyes open as well.

Pandora - modded app on note3, or old trusty iphone 3gs.

If neither of those then on PC in browser. (ads but I can DL what I come across )

*unlimited skips/no ads ftw

Mozilla plugin: "Video DownloadHelper" now picks up pandora songs in firefox



Sometimes DI.FM, but definitely interested in what some other options are.

Grooveshark. It's free and you can load whatever you want to hear and put it on shuffle without hearing bands or songs you don't want. The only commercial is at start up and then it is smooth sailing.

I have uploaded about 40GB of MP3 to Google Music and just use that to listen to my collection. Googles instant mixes are pretty good. Occasionally I will throw on pandora.

Oh yeah, and prime music. But i don't use it as much as i should.
Also, it adds all the music you purchase (physical album, or just MP3) to your library.
But it's only good for popular music.

If i want a specific song youtube straight up, if i want to listen to radio then pandora. I hate spotify with a passion. It's nothing but broken UI bugs and lack of features.

I mainly use Google Music and I love it, I don't mind paying the $10 a month considering how much I use it. I do pop on SoundCloud and YouTube every now and then to try and help look for something new. Google does an alright job shooting you new things every now and then, but doing it manually is always best.

I suppose my taste in music is a bit all over the board. With artists like Flume, XXYYXX, Lincoln Jesser, Borns, Empire of the Sun, and Giraffage being some of my favorites off the top of my head. It wouldn't be unusual to catch me in the garage listening to rap (Logic, Kendrick, A$AP Crew, SchoolboyQ, Kayne, Childish Gambino, J. Cole, JoeyBadass, AbSoul) I do get a touch on the fruity side throwing back to some Modern Talking every now and then, a group my parents listened to when they were young...

That's what I like about Grooveshark. You can play whatever song you want, play it again, skip anything anytime, line up a few hundred songs if you want, and there is less of a buffering issue than youtube because it isn't also loading video. And it is totally free.

Pandora at work through my phone, but I feel like I'm so out of touch still paying for Sirius. In all honesty, the Jason Ellis Show is the only reason I haven't dumped satellite radio yet. It was my savior when I first paid for it though, since I was routinely driving long distances and smart phones didn't exist yet.

Songza most of the time for generic listening.

I do really like Soma FM.. and only partly because my sister is big pals with them. I get to chat with Rusty and a bunch of the staff whenever I visit my sis and hit up a party (and at her wedding).

The apps are also pretty good and well worth the cost of entry.

Been using Pandora for a long time now... have about 40 stations that I've spent years tuning (or not tuning). I'm not "in" to music enough to have ever downloaded my own stuff. I used to buy tapes and CD's, then at a garage sale a few years ago, they all got sold except for a couple dozen of my favorites. I'm totally cool with Pandora, always something new coming up.
