    Remember when we actually had to create our own playlists? Like, from scratch? Oh, and remember those things called CDs? Ah yes, thanks to the Bay Area's very own Pandora Radio, those days are long behind us. What started as a small underground project has become so big in recent years that it has completely changed the way we consume our favorite tunes.

To see for ourselves, we toured the rockin' Oakland HQ of Pandora Radio and met six rad, behind-the-scenes gals. And boy, does this joint look like a fun place to work! After all, who doesn't want to take their meetings in conference rooms fashioned after local music venues and partake in mid-day jam sessions on the cafeteria rock stage?
