Am I the only one who thinks we should have a way to exclude live performances from our listening experience? Make this happen.
Moderator Edit: Changed title for clarity
Even when Pandora decides to continue to dump several consecutive "Live" poorly-recorded, sub-par performance songs, with screaming, whistling, yelling, clapping , and you continue to thumbs down, the paying customers are told that it's no longer possible to skip the unwanted "Live" songs because of Licensing Restriction - Due to licensing restrictions, this song can't be skipped right now.
Unbelievably frustrating that paying customers are not allowed to skip past crappy Live music.
Having control of the "Music DNA" of your channel should be able to give some control of this. I put in a similar feature that should cover this use case:https://community.pandora.com/t5/Feature-Requests/User-control-of-Stations-quot-genre-DNA-quot-add-r...
If you have the option for deeper cuts or discovery this should also be an option
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us the ability to do this! I hate the live songs so much that I'm looking to move to other streaming services if they can offer this ability.
The feature to ban live cuts needs to be added and should be quite easy. Hard to believe it has not been done already.
We would like to be able to block ALL live performances.
In addition to all the ways of specifying the types of music we want, one more, no live music at all.
Way back when Pandora was new, you could actually email the developers directly -- I tried many times to get them to add "live" as one of the "music genome" categories, hoping that Pandora would be smart enough to recognize that I always thumb those down.
Unfortunately they always refused.
Because the "live" licensing is cheaper than studio-recorded music
Profits come before customer feature requests for Pandora. Profits first right?
I know this is an older post, but I would definitely like to have the ability to set certain preferences (i.e. no LIVE versions)
Has this happened yet? Because it needs to
