Cars.com Creates Custom Pandora Branded Radio Stations

Cars.com, the premier online resource for buying and selling new and used vehicles, announced today that they have launched three new custom Pandora branded radio stations, perfect for anyone who spends time behind the wheel or on a computer, smartphone or iPad screen.  "Road Trip," "Tailgate" and "Car Songs" provide distinct playlists with different listeners and settings in mind.

"Road Trip"        An eclectic mix of southern and classic rock, with a little bit of country thrown in.  Sample artists include George Strait, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots.

"Tailgate"           Feel the energy of your favorite sports team with a mix of hip hop, pop and rock.  Sample artists include David Guetta, Kanye West, The Notorious B.I.G. and The Fugees.

"Car Songs"      Imagine the best mix tape featuring songs about cars and driving.  Sample artists and tracks include John Mayer ("Route 66"), Cake ("The Distance"), Chris LeDoux ("Cadillac Ranch") and Meat Loaf ("Paradise by the Dashboard Light").

"Pandora is everywhere in today's world, on the web, smartphones, iPads and in cars," said Mitch Golub, Cars.com president.  "With this campaign we can help car buyers find not only the right car for the right price but the right mix of music for any car-related occasion." 

The national, cross-platform campaign will run through mid-December 2011.
