I’ve been using Rdio for a while now (did you catch it on The MTM Top 10 for August?) and loving the unlimited music! And I haven’t even really explored the “radio station” and social aspects fully yet.
It’s taken me a while to get comfortable enough with the interface to make mixes quickly. Tonight, I spent a couple of hours. Needless to say, I love the fact I can find new music, download it without cost, and incorporate it seamlessly.
As for my selection of music, I try to make my Sunday classes more mellow and upbeat – not so pop and hip-hop heavy. Especially with today being 9/11, I want people to leave feeling like they were able to grab onto the things they love about life, not the crap they deal with every day. Whatever is weighing them down, they always know they have the opportunity to purge it in my class.
