Found an internet music site that seems to work with slow internet service.

We use two internet services out here in the woods but neither provide true broadband speeds for videos and music. They are often choppy to the point of distraction. End result was that I rarely viewed or listened.

Others may have already solved this, but to me, it was new. I ran across AOL Radio two weeks ago and it seems to buffer the slow speeds for music. It has a selection of R&B / Country / Rock - Pop - Oldies - Hip Hop - Lite Sounds & Latino.

I like that it identifies the group, the song and usually brings up pictures of the performing group. Google AOL Radio and you will find the main link.

I have not had any conflicts with my security programs, or unusual pop-ups or spy-ware show up, so I guess it is clean.

Oh, did I mention that it is FREE? I like the price.

We have broadband, but we use AOL and Last.fm and have never had a problem. We also use Pandora which you have to have broadband in order for it to work.

They are all free but with Pandora you only get 40 free hours a month. If you want more hours, you have to pay for it. You can create your own channels. And it has parental controls on it (which I enjoy!)We have a few channels that we created such as Glee, Eddie Money, Evanescence.

So we switch up between the 3 different sites.

AOL also has channels that play Halloween music and Christmas music. Along with music from around the world such as Irish, German, Japanese and more. Oh, and a Kids channel.
