How to Record From Pandora

By Amy Sutton

Pandora is a website that provides streaming Internet radio for free. Users just type in the name of a song, genre or artist and Pandora scans its library to find music that is similar and creates a personalized radio station. One of the only down-sides of Pandora is the inability to save or record songs on the Pandora website. Thankfully there are recording programs that download and save or record the songs you choose.
