It's called Pandora, and I think it may be the most significant new concept to come down the pike in years. You may have heard of it -- you may even be an experienced user -- but Pandora is much more than it seems, and that's what I want to share with you. ¶ For the unenlightened, Pandora is a music application connected to what the founder calls the 'Music Genome Project.' In a nutshell, the creators have listened to thousands of songs and coded each with 'genes' -- common attributes that enable users to find music they like. ..." Link: The POMO Blog
Updated 3/18/2006: Tim Eby in a comment below reminds us to also check out Last.fm. Steve Krause writes about both in Pandora and Last.fm: Nature vs. Nurture in Music Recommenders. Quite an interesting post. Link: Steve Krause : Blog.
