Using a 2019 MacBook Pro, Safari 16.4 and Ventura 13.3.1
During playback, Pandora pauses at the commercial break and has to be restarted by pressing play. Every. Stinking. Time. I didn't realize how many commercials are played. It is ... annoying.
I have deleted cache, history, and cookies. No help. I've deleted and reloaded Safari. No change. I'm not using Chrome or any other browser, so that's not an option. No ad blockers. No firewalls.

Song plays. Then silence because I have to hit play again to hear an ad. Then silence. Hit play again to hear another ad. Then silence. Hit play again to hear a song or two. Then silence. Hit play again to hear an ad...
@callicebay Did you have a chance to try Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome? I understand switching browsers isn't an ideal solution, but this will help determine whether or not this issue is browser-specific.
Let me know how it goes.
