Seven years ago I stumbled upon Pandora. And seven years ago, when the website started registering a measurable amount of hits coming from New Zealand, all NZ IP addresses were locked out of the site due to copyright laws.
Every couple of years I would remember Pandora and go back to the site, only to read the same shut out notice.
Then this morning I got an email...
It seems the appropriate laws and agreements have been settled upon and we are now able to stream Pandora online radio in New Zealand. :-)
I'm really excited about this. I logged in to my seven year old account to find all 18 of my old stations still loaded, and started listening right away. Pandora is how I discovered Brett Dennen and Jason Mraz, all that time ago. I think I'll be listening to more music generally from now on and I'm really excited about it.
