Jango is a new (and legal) service that lets you listen to music from your favorite artists on demand (sort of). It's not truly on demand since songs that you request are mixed in with tracks from similar artists.
Like Pandora, Jango lets you listen and rate songs that you hear, and songs and artists that you like will be played more often than those you don't. Adding a social aspect to online music, you can also see which other users are listening to the same tracks that you are, and also tune in to what they're listening to.
To listen to tracks from artists, just type in their names, and new stations will be created. You can control how much variety of music you hear by setting the Music Discovery Control for each station. It ranges from Popular Favorites to Wide Variety (which features less well known music).
