Zach from zjembedded.blogspot.com has shared his step by step process to turn an RPi into a Pandora streamer:
I recently finished a project to turn the Raspberry Pi into a music streamer. I had seen a couple of other projects here and here that were the same basic concept, so I knew it was possible (this is nothing new…just new for me), and I wanted to try to figure it out by myself. My basic justification for the project was that I listen to a lot of music on Pandora or Spotify while reading and doing homework, but having it up on the computer means I have an instant distraction any time I feel like checking email, news, or whatever. Building a small, standalone player with just a screen to display song titles and a simple interface using a few buttons removes that temptation. I also had a couple of weeks off school between summer and fall sessions, and I wanted a quick project I could finish up before I lose all free time again.
