Expanding musical horizons

I haven't bought a CD in over 6 months - not because I'm downloading them, but because I can't find anything I like. Help me find more music?

I have about 2000 tracks on my PC that I listen to on shuffle, a combination of my CDs and anything that I have downloaded. This covers a bunch of genres - rock, funk, blues, jazz, classical, pop, punk...pretty much anything, as long as its half decent. I don't listen to the radio since everything played is crap, so I almost never get exposed to new artists. I'd quite like to get some more David Bowie and Tom Waits, but I'm intimidated by their large back catalogue - I have Ziggy Stardust and Best of.., and Rain Dogs, but don't know where to go from there. The same problem goes for classical music - where do I start? Can anyone recommend internet radio stations with a wide range of music, or some other way of expanding my musical horizons?
