You can "make a station for a friend" aka "gift a station" on Pandora. Just look down at the bottom of their material and there will be 4 boxes. Click and follow the instructions. It's easy. You can even send the station to yourself if you think you'll like it too. It's a cool, fast, easy, cheap (free) way to give somebody a present they can use over and over again.
Another cool feature is the concert finder. I haven't actually used it with any success (and it failed to pick up on Sarah Mac Band shows), but it looks neat. It's down there on the bottom too. You just click the button and it searches through the artists who populate your stations and it finds out if they're having any concerts near you (recall that you gave Pandora your zip code when you signed up).
