Create a Station from a Playlist

Is there a way to turn a playlist into a station so that it will play on a streaming device?

@johnmb0854  GSOTD (Genre Songs Of The Day) would make a great station. Not because it is I that post it daily. Just due to the fact the playlist grows everyday. Right now the GSOTD playlist is nearly 700 songs. I honestly do not know any station that has that many songs within it. Just me adding my two cents worth. Take care and stay safe.

This seems like from a technical standpoint it should be easy.  Take the playlist, make a station in the system, move all the songs in the playlist to the “station seeds” list. I like that with pandora stations I can start to see variety that doesn’t come with a playlist.

Agree ... there are some great Playlists that would make great Stations and then could set to shuffle for even more variety.

I would love the ability to create a new Station from an existing Playlist that I have created.

The idea would be that when someone activates this feature, the system would scan through the songs on the playlist and create a station that uses the most common musical themes/traits as well as the most common Artists that are represented on the playlist as its Seeds for the newly created Station.

The effect would be to create a Station in a similar manner to the way that Spotify allows a user to view, listen to, and "like"/"collect" a "Radio Station" based directly off of a playlist.  (I prefer Pandora over Spotify, but I would love to see this particular feature implemented in some way here).

I desire (scratch that - pray for -) the option to create stations from my playlists as well.  With nearly 12 years of fine tuning my favorites and almost $1k paid on my Pandora subscription, don't let me down.  I'm sure there are many others that wish this as well.

Please let me create a station from a Playlist. It is the exact feature I hoped and expected to have with Pandora Premium!

It's not an exact solution, but I believe if you have repeat turned off, and auto play turned on.. when you play through a playlist and it gets to the end, what is played from auto-play is essentially what you are looking for. a station which uses the songs of your playlists as seeds
