Hi list members, Ken here.  A recent post to the Gui-talk list brought  up 
Pandora Internet Radio, and a string of posts recently brought up the CD 
baby  upgrade that has left blind out.  Both of these are because of the 
dreaded  flash applications that screen readers can't see.  While we work on CD  
baby, here is an alternative to Pandora.  Especially since it appears that  
pandora is of the opinion that they must be financially stable before the 
access  issue can be addressed.  It will mean years before we have access to  
it.  So to get there attention let's take our Internet listening of a  
personalized nature elsewhere.  Visit _www.last.fm_ (http://www.last.fm)  and join 
it.  When you first sign  up, go to where it says profile and you will see 
a edit field where you type all  the artists you want separating each with a 
comma.  The functionality is  very much like Pandora.  I can't listen 
cleanly myself because of Dial up  but based on the artists I entered I tested 
four or five stations and Boy!   I can hardly wait to ditch dial up.  So until 
we win the fight with 
CD baby and Pandora _www.last.fm_ (http://www.last.fm)  and  enjoy.
I pledge to  participate actively in the efforts of the national federation 
of the blind to  achieve equality, opportunity, and security for the blind; 
to support the  policies and programs of the federation; and abide by it's
