I think it's remarkable that a radio guy makes comments about 'annoying commercials' on internet radio.
Pull your head out of the sand and look around, starting with the mirror

We maintain that Pandora is a good consumer product amongst a sea of other internet radio products. Time has proven that internet radio will not survive as a subsciption based model. So, they have to sell ads to survive. That's annoying to the listeners who never expected to hear commercials on the Pandora product. So, the listener experience isn't as good as it once was. This is documented by Pandora listeners in multiple studies. From an advertiser perspective their registration process is flawed so they don't truly know who their listeners are. They rarely prompt so they don't know whether their listeners are listening or not but they are still served up ads. Additionally, they don't know where their listeners are because 75% of the listening comes from mobile devises. If advertisers understood this they would think twice about using them to advertise. Add royalty issues to the list and you have a $5 stock when all is said and done.
