    Right now I'm really enjoying Slacker Radio. Although perhaps not as comprehensive as others, it has some variety that makes leaves me most entertained.

    I use (between the house and 3 vehicles):

    ooTunes for many, many radio stations (local and abroad). Requires internet connection.

    Slacker 'Radio Plus' account for a variety of commercial free listening. Requires internet connection.

    and....

    MOG 'Premium' account for listening to full CDs (at CD quality). Requires internet connection for streaming, but doesn't for downloaded content.

    I really like Slacker for the way it creates a great listening experience of 'similar' music (much like Pandora, but much much better in all ways). But, MOG is awesome for downloading entire libraries of music. It's not quite as good at picking 'similar music' when it's putting together a 'radio station' on the fly (like Pandora or Slacker). But, the biggest thing is I haven't bought an album in 2 years! It's all just downloaded and played via MOG....and if I like it, I keep it, if not, just deleted.

    I junked 3 Sirius radio subscriptions with the above setup....cut the monthly $ by more than half.

    HTH.

    I use audiogalaxy to stream my music i have at home. I have an external hd with a lot of music and it gets streamed to my phone. The app is free and you do use data and need a data connection.

    I recently got a free 6 month subscription to Rdio and I think it's great.

    not the same kind of music streaming but I love using MSpot to access my music library at home. Way more polished than Amazon music and a little more useful than iTunes Match. It also lets you set the quality/size of your music so you don't use up as much data.

    Although maybe not as relevant for music streaming, I really like TuneIn Radio's Tivo-like recording functionality.
