Artist only mode only plays 1 track by each artist

I have the Pandora Premium subscription. 

One of my accounts I have a station with tons of bands added. Artist only mode used to (like 2 or 3 weeks ago) shuffle through all the artist throughout the day. It would play three or four songs by artist A, then 3 or 4 by artist B, and 3 or 4 by artist C etc. etc. all day.  I liked this mode because it would go a little deeper in the catalogue of a bands songs than normal modes. 

 

Starting around last week it just plays one song by a band and then rolls onto someone else. It's like it is on "My station". I'm using it on  PC and have tried the app and web browser. The artist only button is highlighted like it's in that mode but the song selection doesn't change from my station. 

 

What am I doing wrong? How do I bring this mode back?

The station name is Warehouse Music. It's under my work email Matt.@illis@Sc*****.com log in.

My personal login (chongo228@*******.com) has the same station that is a shared station. This shared station hasn't worked right in forever and I'm not really worried about it. I really just want to get the work station back up and running.

@chongo228 Thanks for following up.

I do see there are a large number of artists who have been added as variety to that station.

When selecting Artist Only Mode, your station should only play tracks from artists who have been added as variety to that station.

To clarify, do artists who have not been added to variety to that station still play in Artist Only Mode?

If so, can you please send me a screenshot of what you are seeing the next time that happens?

I appreciate you working with me on this. 🤝

Trying to pay attention today. From what I can tell it's only playing artist added to the station but just plays one song and then moves on.

Thanks for following up, @chongo228.

If any artist (that isn't added as variety on your station) plays in Artist Only Mode, please send me a screenshot of what you are seeing.

Thanks again!

It's playing only artist I have added but that's not really my concern. In the past (for years) it would play a 3 or 4 songs by the artist and then move on to the next artist. This caused it to play songsyou won't hear on crows favorite or My Station mode. It was a way to trick Pandora into playing a little more variety but not going too deep with Deep cuts or discovery modes. I listen to Pandora 40+ hours a week during work and My Station and Crowd Fav are very repetitive even with all the artist I have added to the station. Artist only was a way around the "only hits" modes.  How do I bring back the Artist only mode playing songs in blocks and not one at a time?
