Slacker is a free interactive Internet radio service that allows you to create your own customized music stations starting with either Slacker’s preset stations or your own custom built stations. It has some similarities to Pandora. According to Slacker, they many traditional genre, specialty, and artist stations pre-programmed by professional DJs while also letting you build entire stations of specific artists. You can continue to evolve any of these stations by rating favorite songs and banning artists or songs. Stations can also be fine tuned to play older or newer music, more hits or more eclectic music. The Slacker Radio app on iTunes gives you access to the entire Slacker music library — millions of songs.
The Slacker Radio Plus offering costs $4/month and offers unlimited skips, unlimited song requests, and no audio or banner ads. I have 10, free one-month Slacker Radio Plus accounts to give away. Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your e-mail address, and if you're one of the first 10 to reply, I'll send it on to Slacker. You must already be registered for Slacker's free version and have that e-mail address be associated with your account.
