  1. The word "Pandora" in Pandora radio comes from Greek mythology. Pandora was a fortunate woman who had many fine gifts given to her by the gods including music. She was a curious woman too. When the gods gave her a beautiful box (the infamous Pandora's box) and warned her not to open it, she let her curiosity get the best of her, opened it and released many evils into the world. For their radio name, Pandora Media liked the combined implications of the word "Pandora" in terms of both music and curiosity.
