Last time I was here talking about a Slacker Premium Radio promotion asking the question: “what could go wrong?” Well, apparently the only thing that went wrong is that Slacker noticed the review, and decided to let 8BitDad do a giveaway for THREE 3-month Premium Radio subscriptions.
So that is definitely a thing that is awesome.
In case you missed the review, Slacker Radio is a radio service that is available online and on your mobile device. You can get a free subscription and gain access to the entire Slacker library(over 8 million songs), which is compiled by similarities in music and by human music experts who have custom-made many of the 150+ stations available on Slacker. Alternatively, you can custom-program your OWN station (assuming you don’t entirely trust the Slacker experts….orrrrrrrr, if you’re just a snob). You can also get a Plus subscription, which gives you access to unlimited skips and you can cache particular stations so that you can use Slacker on your mobile without a signal or Wi-Fi connection.
The Premium subscription takes it to the next level, giving you on-demand access to any song in the Slacker library, unlimited playback of any song, and all the goodies that are part of the free and plus subscriptions. It takes all the best features from other services like Pandora and Spotify, injects them with steroids, and combines them into one rad service. Now, with the support of Slacker Radio, 8BitDad is prepared to give away three of these 3-month subscriptions to our readers.
As of right meow, you’ve got less than seven days to sign up for, and try a free 30-day premium subscription to Slacker Online Radio.
I didn’t think I was going to do this part-review/part-promo for Slacker, especially after asking Zach what he thought of doing the trial (in short, he said: “meh”), but I’m a pretty big Slacker fan-dad, and I don’t want you to miss a chance at a free month of premium subscription (ordinarily $9.99/month).
The bottom line is that Slacker is the best online radio source I’ve tried – both at the desk and on my mobile device – and having a free month of premium service was A-MAZE-ING! Check below the fold for a more complete review, details about the offer, and a link to where you can get hooked up.
Since we now live in a digital age, long gone are the days when parents thumb through their own music collection to find the least-inappropriate music to share with their babies, toddlers and children. No more plopping a kid down on his play mat and tossing a James Taylor or Hall & Oates cassette into the boombox for playtime. Now that we’re plugged into the matrix, we’ve got tons of sources for music these days – and those options also filter down to our young ones (for better or worse).
Today, I’ll take a look at three popular online music streaming services – Pandora Radio, Slacker Radio, and Radiotime.com – and the options that they offer you in the Children’s Music genre.
See how they stacked up after the break.
