Ever since finding the Pandora radio app I’ve been keeping us in easy listening boat cruising music,  even while in the comfort of our own home.   Right now my iphone is connected to a vizio tv sound bar that is located in our outdoor sitting arbor, I.e. outdoor paradise.


This music app allows you to write down what style music you want and it does the rest, similar to a music autopilot. 

Let’s just say the music app goes astray and starts playing something you really don’t like; and want to take the time to get up and depress the up or down arrow, it gets itself back on track.


So, want to listen to, boating magazine top 20;

1. _Master and Commander_: “The Battle”/Best played when hooked up
