Foud it through StumbleUpon recently, everone at work is going nuts over it. It's got some flaws but will generate quite interesting stuff based on just one or two suggestions. Loads of fairly obscure music is included too.

A strong plus for the fact that you can have a hundred different stations without them impacting each other.

It thinks you're mainstream 'cause you picked a hit. ;) We had a nice acoustic channel going at work (with martha/rufus wainwright, eva cassidy and gillian welch being the agreed-on basis) until someone threw in a coldplay song, at which point it started throwing bryan adams and sixpence none the richer at us.

It's a bit hit and miss, but my surf/Rock'n'Roll instrumental channel and my weird sophisticated instrumentals channel rock.

I'm "birdseed at loudmedicine dot net" by the way - "Cool Mule Radio" and "Cowabunga Radio" are the best ones I've made.

This is exactly the kind of thing I knew should exist. Because it finds songs by how they sound, rather than by who made them, which means you don't get the solid genre-boundaries that other recommendation sites fall into. My radio station that started with a melodic metal track has drifted through chorals and soundscapes and back again. Good stuff.

I recommend putting Caesars in the query line. Very good music ensues.
