My previous post talked about a service that allows you to purchase those CD’s for your collection. Of course that’s so old-school (although preferred by myself) for those of you that don’t want to buy an entire album just for those one or two songs you’re really interested in having.
For those of you that prefer to download your music, you should check-out the Yahoo! Music Engine. Similar to iTunes, There are a couple of different options available for users, including buying individual songs, unlimited service and internet radio.
The internet radio, or LAUNCHcast Radio, is what I’m really a big fan of right now. It is by far the most user friendly and expansive online radio service I’ve ever used. You can choose to use the free service, which has ads, or if you’re like me just go ahead and purchase the “Plus” service for about $35/yr.
The LAUNCHcast option has five different “stations” for Christian Music Fans like yourself.
- Christian Rock
- Contemporary Christian
- Praise and Worship
- 1990’s Contemporary Christian
Of course you can customize your own station and rate the songs you listen to by artist, album or song. ThenÂ Yahoo! recommends songs that are similar to your choices of preferred songs already. This is how I was introduced to News at Eleven and Downhere.
It’s not all Christian, but if you’d like to check out my station of choices, a link is available below. The other nice thing is that I can choose other people’s stations as “Influencers” to my own station.
