MeeMix thinks of itself as an Internet community which offers members the ability to create and listen to personalized radio stations. MeeMix uses a "taste prediction algorithm" which tries and figure out what you will want to hear - not unlike what Internet stations like Pandora or Last.fm pioneered.

I started by typing in "Abba" (It's just my default music search term) upon which MeeMix began playing "Take a Chance on Me" - a big 1978 hit for the band. MeeMix then decided I should hear Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" followed by a 1979 disco hit by Cameo. At this point, although still entertained, I was a bit curious why MeeMix had deserted me on a dance floor dressed like John Travolta in "Saturday Night Fever".
I decided to manually advance to the next song and MeeMix brought up Leif Garrett and "I Was Made For Dancin'". At this point I ripped off my white jacket, threw it across my office and just started doing the "Hustle".
MeeMix has a "Mood Control" with three controls: Surprize Me, Pulse, and Volume. I cranked Surprize Me all the way to the max and a song called "(Funny) Bone" by Chic began playing - another late '70s tune I've never heard. I definitely was surprised.
MeeMix has a Not or Hot slider control which let's you tell it whether or not you like what it's picking for you to hear. MeeMix provides a lot of other controls to promote interaction, too: a favorites tool, another to block cuts, the ability to buy the CD you're listening to, recommendation tools, and more.
MeeMix is fun to play with and free to use. First time visitors can try it out before registering and create up to 3 radio stations that allow you to listen to 5 songs on each one.
