This would be a fantastic addition to the Squeezebox if it's possible to do it.

Have you tried LastFM? as far as I can tell it does a similar thing to Pandora and definitely connects to SlimServer using James Craigs fantastic plugin.

It can be flaky on some days but generally I get a good service.

This line on the FAQ suggests that streaming might not be possible

Q: Can I listen to Pandora on my stereo?

Pandora delivers high quality 128Kbps audio streams and they'll sound great on your stereo. All you need to do is plug your laptop or computer's audio output into a stereo input. You may need to get a cable to do that (Radio Shack). They usually cost less than ten dollars.

Another great way to get Pandora to your stereo is to use an FM transmitter. We've heard good things about the RocketFM from Griffin Technologies

However I could be wrong, it has been known....

It's not available at the moment, but there's a pretty strong hint it
might be one day.
