We can help you find free music.
Here’s a wonderful website that allows you to listen to free music on your computer over the internet. It is called Jango. You can even choose the kind of music or the artist. Right now for instance you can listen to Christmas music and even choose from several varieties. There are also apps for your android or iphone so you can also listen to Jango in the car.
You can listen to different stations like music from the 80’s or Country or Indie. You can also make up your own radio station with all your favorites.
Here is the site: Jango.com.
Other sites are CBC music webpage, last.fm, and Yahoo music.
I’ll add to this list as I find them.

Here’s an excellent blog post about free music by good friend and tech Jody Gristwood. We do have Canadian alternatives to Pandora and Jody does a great job explaining them. Click here to read. http://thegeekdownthestreet.com/blog/canadian-alternatives-for-spotify-and-pandora/
The above link doesn’t work, so, as a work around, do this: Right click the link where it says “Click here to read.” Then select “Copy link address.” Put your cursor in the address bar and right click again, this time choosing “Paste and go.”
Now you can read Jody’s blog post.
Ms. Ducktoes likes to crank up the music and dance around the room. I know, embarrassing to teenaged sons and yes, even to the techs who work for me, poor guys who have to put up with all my shenanigans. Embarrassing or not, life is too short not to kick up your heels. But only if the music is good. And that’s where Jango comes in. Jango is custom radio that plays what you want, online. It’s a way to listen to free music, legally and safely, and is also fun and social. All you have to do is sign up for a free account and then log in. Type in an artist, any artist, and your first “station” starts right away. It will play that artist and other similar artists. Then it will fine tune your station based on what you like or dislike. Put in all your favorite artists. And listen away.
You can also put a Jango app on your iPhone or Android and listen to it in your car.
So crank, it baby, crank it. Yow, mama.
