My Noise Music:
My Noise is the most amazing site for ambiant sound I've found. It has natural sounds (e.g. rain, wind, waves, thunder), deep and complex atmospheres/settings, and a great variety of tonal drones, voices, industrial sounds, and so on. Whatever it is that you want to hear to enhance your life and work, My Noise is the place to go. The site is a labor of love and is always expanding, and for a donation, you can also mix multiple streams as you like. You really should click on the link above and check this out!
I had a bunch of links to online music stations here at one point, and it got a little hard to keep up with, and they kept dying as well, so now I'm only listing a few sites that are especially interesting or personal in some way to me.
The following link is to a helpful page with information about a bunch of Grooveshark and Limewire Alternatives (accompanied by a relatively innocuous VPN sales pitch). If you're interested in checking out a few different streaming music possibilities and trying some things out, it's worth a look.

My Pandora Stations:
Back Country Funk
A tasty mix of country, rock, and blues, combined with home-cooking and moonshine, lazy days at the old fishin' hole, and nights in smoky bars listening to fiddle music and electric guitar.
A station for anyone who's from the backwoods, or occasionally wishes they were...
Wide Wide Awake
This station is all about music that's contains serious energy. I'm not talking heavy metal energy--that's different--but energy that comes from speed and uncomplicated intensity and driving force. Seeds include Green Day, Live, Blink 182, and The Ataris.
This is music to listen to when you procrastinated for way too long and you have three hours of work to get done in an hour. Have some caffiene while you're at it.
This station is mostly very mellow music; lots of slow, relaxed vocals and songs that are emotional and from the heart without being angsty whinefests. Seeds include Shawn Mullins, Michelle Branch, Stephen Ashbrooke, and Sarah McLachlan.
This is music to listen to while watching the snow drift down outside your window, and drinking a warm mug of hot chocolate, and thinking about that guys and girls you knew in high school, and how cool it is that your life is as fun now as it was then.
Feel Good Rock
This station started with a base of mostly older (70s-80s) rock that's not very hard or very metal. Seeds included The Eagles, Journey, and Tom Petty. I am open to adding newer artists to this station, and have done so, so long as the music has that same sort of feel-good vibe to it.
This is music to listen to while watching a sunset and drinking a cold beer, or driving a vintage convertable down a lonely desert road and enjoying the warm breeze on your skin.
