This probably a very dumb question but I am pretty new to Appleworld.

Is there any workaround way to get access to apps that seem to be restricted to the US App Store. eg I am looking at Pandora Radio and SiriusXM - would love 'em but not available here.

Paid apps you either need a US credit card associated with the account or you can buy US iTunes cards to load credit on the account.

Some apps are geo-blocked, and I think Pandora might be as well. Others include Netflix and CBS Player - you can download them (through your US account) but they won't work as they're intended.

For that you need to set up a VPN.
