I couldn’t believe I hadn’t made this a pick yet, so I figured I had to throw it out there.  Pandora is a internet radio service that learns what you like and don’t like in an effort to introduce you to new music.  You start off by giving it an artist you like, then plays a song by them.  After that first song, it makes a guess about another song you might like.  You can then give it a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora learn.  This keeps going as long as you like, occasionally going back to songs you marked with a thumbs up.  The best part, it is all free, with the limitation that it only is available in the US and UK.  If you are a music person and havn’t taken a look at Pandora, give it a whirl.
