Michelle Solomon

Head of Oldies & Jazz Programming | Creator Services Team at Pandora

I've been involved in curating Pandora's music collection for over 14 years and was part of the team that built Pandora's Curation department. I am currently on the Catalog & Creator Services team and program & curate our Oldies, Jazz, and Soundtracks/Showtunes stations. Outside of Pandora, I DJ professionally under the name Mexican Spitfire, have my own monthly DJ residencies spinning soul, funk and disco several times a month at popular Oakland bars, as well as guest DJ at various events and parties around Oakland and San Francisco, am an avid LP and 45 collector, and have run my own music blog, Lady Plays The Fuzz, centered around obscure garage music from the 60s/early-70s.
