Slacker Radio ~ Back to School Giveaway

When listening to the radio, do you ever get tired of hearing the same few popular songs over & over? Do you ever wish you could create your own station, with songs YOU want to hear all the time? Well I have a found just the radio station for you ~ it is called Slacker ...

Slacker ( 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.

With the free account, you get a limited number of skips. You are allowed 6 skips per hour per station. You also get some ads, which to me isn't a big deal since you do on the regular radio.

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. You can also get the complete song lyrics with the plus plan if you want to sing along.

Signing up is super easy! Once you are signed up, you can either listen to a pre-made station or create your own. Creating your own is SO easy. I listen to Rap with Eminem being my all time favorite. I entered Eminem in the search and got an entire station of his songs plus all related music. Slacker did an amazing job of finding similar music including a bunch of Detroit rappers that you never hear on regular stations. If you don't like what they come up, with you can customize the station. I had the options of "hearting" all the Eminem songs I love plus similar artists I want to hear more of. I'm very impressed! If I get tired of listening to my customized station, I can easily click over to the hip-hop station & get even more music.

If Rap & Hip-Hop aren't your thing, don't worry ~ Slacker offers everything. I noticed a country station, smooth jazz, street scene, alternative, rock, classic rock, top hits, electric/dance and tons more.
