I just Discovered Last.fm it's brilliant

www.last.fm Last.fm is a UK-based Internet radio and music community website and it's totally awesome, it is pretty accurate at guessing what type of music you fancy listening to. All you need to do is tell it 'i want to listen to stuff like chemical brothers' for example and it will stream a constant taiored radio station to you for free, if it plays something you don't like, then click a button and you'll never hear it again. It remembers the choices you make and your stream changes according to your tastes. It was stared in 2002, and now had a massive library of music streaming all over the globe.

Bespoke radio, brilliant. Best part is that it's completely free :)

If you want more info on how it works, here's some blurb from wikipedia
Using a music recommendation system called "Audioscrobbler", Last.fm builds a detailed profile of each user's musical taste by recording details of all the songs the user listens to, either on the streamed radio stations, the user's computer or some portable music devices. This information is transferred to Last.fm's database ("scrobbled") via a plugin installed into the user's music player. The profile data is then displayed on the user's profile page. The site offers numerous social networking features and can recommend and play artists similar to the user's favourites.

Users can create custom radio stations and playlists from any of the audio tracks in Last.fm's music library, and are able to listen to some individual tracks on demand, or download tracks if the rights holder has previously authorised it. Registration, which is free, is required to acquire a profile but is not necessary to view any part of the site or to listen to radio stations.
