Just discovered this forum (don't really know how I've managed to not find it untill now...). Was surprised to see that there doesn't seem to be a single thread about pianobar, it's an open-source Pandora radio client that removes the ads and is easy to setup with a proxy so you can access Pandora from anywhere in the world. Since I started using pianobar/Pandora I very rarely start up MPD to listen to my FLACs anymore, despite being lower quality audio (192kbit MP3 with a Pandora One account) it's just so handy for a lazy person like me not having to think about exactly what album you want to listen to and search through all the music on the harddrive. Perfect for discovering new music and background listening. Well, too many good things to say about pianobar, just try it out if you haven't already! Since I'm using a headless server I wanted to be able to control pianobar remotely and decided to write an Android app for that purpose, it's free and ad-free, has support for most of the important pianobar functions and supports pianobar running on Linux, Mac (install with Macports or HomeBrew) and theoretically, but barely tested, Windows (pianobar built under Cygwin). See Pianobar (Pandora Radio) Remote Control for Android for setup instructions if you are interested in that.
