Obama radio

Slacker Radio has launched an "Obama  Station."
Here's what they told us: 

The station was programed using songs from Barack Obama's speeches, campaign trail efforts, his own writings and interviews, including those from Rolling Stone and BLENDER Magazine. The DJ's at Slacker also utilized his campaign rally music and the "Yes We Can" CD available through the campaign. Some of the songs even have samples from his speeches.

All songs and artists were selected specifically through Obama's own music tastes. Hear inspiring tunes from Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow and many more. You can find the station here.

Here's more from the press release:
Slacker is an interactive Internet radio service allowing users to create their own customized music stations starting with either Slacker's preset stations or their own custom built stations. Slacker offers many traditional genre, specialty, and artist stations pre-programmed by professional DJs while also letting users build entire stations of specific artists. Users can continue to evolve any of these stations by rating favorite songs and banning artists or songs. Stations can also be fine tuned to play older or newer music, more hits or more eclectic music.

This Fall Slacker released a new portable player called "Slacker G2," the next generation of the world's only completely portable Personal Radio player. Slacker's patent-pending radio delivery network automatically downloads and continuously refreshes thousands of personally selected songs on each device, and turns them into personalized radio stations - all for free. Because the players don't have to be connected to Wi-Fi to play, Slacker G2 owners can listen to CD quality, personalized radio wherever they go.

Wonder what kinda tunes a McCain station would feature. Probably not the Grateful Dead, though that might be appropriate.

I checked out Slacker radio. This is fun! Already found the Dylan station, which you might enjoy. Of course, right now they are playing one of his less illustrious songs: Hurricane. Oh well.
