I need to write a lot of things spanning from December through the winter to March. I’ve worked myself into this idea that I can’t write unless I have an unlimited amount of free time to write into, that somehow I can’t write a blog post over a few one-hour sessions on weeknights. I treasure that lazy Sunday morning, with a cup of coffee and a donut and NPR. So, with the intent to write, I thought I’d also do some willing advertising.
Pandora, the fantastic online radio service is disallowed outside of the US. That sucks, and it’s been a thorn in my side ever since moving here. But I recently remembered another, older and more traditionally simple internet radio station that somehow is as amazing and listenable as Pandora but without the fancy tech. Radio Paradise is something that my uncle Andy told me about more than five years ago. It’s free, it’s high-quality, and it has no commercials. And it’s good!
