I used to listen to satellite radio while I was on my computer but now there’s a charge for it. So that left me listening to my iTunes. Well that’s all well and good except it’s all the same songs. I like the variety and hearing new stuff.
I reviewed the internet radio service Slacker back in July. I like it a lot and I listen to it daily now. Here’s a refresher on Slacker.
Slacker (http://www.Slacker.com) is a free Internet radio service allowing users to create their own customized music stations. Slacker offers many traditional genre, specialty and artist stations pre-made by professional DJs like “Today’s Hits”, “80’s, 90’s and Today”, “Country”, etc. while also letting users build entire stations of specific artists just by typing in their name.
Slacker Radio Plus is the upgraded subscription service and for $3.99/mo, listeners have unlimited song skipping, access to song lyrics, unlimited song requests and no audio or banner ads. Slacker has 4x the music library as the leading competition and is available via the web, BlackBerrys, iPhones, Sony BRAVIA TVs, etc.
Slacker gave me a heads up that they’re running a new promo that enables listeners to get a free BlackBerry Curve smartphone so they can take Slacker everywhere. All major carriers are available (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile) and every offer features a Blackberry Curve smartphone. The offers aren’t all identical, but they all offer the ability to get a free BlackBerry smartphone with either a new contract, or an extension (depending on your carrier and where you are in your current contract). Visit http://www.slacker.com/freephone to learn more.
Three winners will each receive a 3 month subscription to Slacker Radio Plus. You will need a valid email already configured for Slacker to win so if you don’t have a Slacker account you will need to create one if you hope to win.
HOW TO ENTER. (MANDATORY)
To enter visit the Slacker site and then come back here and leave a comment telling me what station you think you would listen to most. (Remember you need an account if you win so create your account while you’re on the site.)
