Pandora will be ad-free on September 9th for its 10th anniversary

Listener Love Day

Pandora has had a good run since it launched way back in 2005, when streaming music was still a nightmare plaguing music executives across the country. In the 10 years since it launched, Pandora's users have racked up over 74 billion listening hours and created over 8 billion stations. To thank its nearly 80 million listeners, the streaming service is shutting down its ads for 24 hours on September 9th.

"This is a thank you to each and every listener who has tuned in to Pandora over the past 10 years," Pandora founder Tim Westergren said in a statement. Listener Love Day, as Pandora is calling it, will last from 12AM ET on Wednesday, September 9th until 12AM ET on Thursday, September 10th. If you haven't given Pandora a try in a while, next Wednesday is the perfect time to change that.
