Comedy channels in my music feed.

I have never subscribed to or even listened to a comedy or story channel but somehow they have all of a sudden started popping into my music feed. I have been giving them all thumbs down as soon I realize what they are but unfortunately it has not stopped them from popping in. Can you block them somehow so this madness stops?

@Roe It looks like those tracks are being pulled from this station you have added to your collection: 80s And 90s Music by Sean Monroe

Screen Shot 2022-05-02 at 4.38.37 AM.png

This is a station based off of a comedy bit by Sean Monroe.

I recommend deleting that station from your collection to resolve this issue.

Hope this helps!

Thank you, by looking back at feeds recently added I traced it back to a station that was marked as James Taylor. I deleted that station and it seemed to solve the issue!

Thank You

I'm getting tons of unwanted comedy tracks in a station based on musical artist Sturgill Simpson. I don't want any spoken word material at all in a music station. Please make it a setting.

@JHoekstra I took a look at your Sturgill Simpson Radio station, and can see the comedy tracks are being pulled from an additional seed that you added: Todd Day

Here is a screenshot of where I am seeing the additional artist that you added to your station:

You can delete any of the bad seeds by editing your station.

To delete that bad seed from a computer:

  1. From My Collection, visit your station list.
  2. Click on the name of the station you'd like to edit. This will take you directly to the station's "backstage page." 
  3. Hover the mouse over the station seed you'd like to remove and select Delete.

To delete that bad seed from a mobile device:

  1. From My Collection, visit your station list.
  2. Tap on the name of the station you'd like to edit.
  3. This will start your station, so tap the the Thumb icon in the upper right corner of your screen to continue to the station's backstage page.
  4. From the station's backstage page, tap on the Edit icon (the small pencil to the left of the play icon) to edit your station, and scroll down to Station Created From.
  5. Remove this "bad seed" by tapping the small (X) beside that item.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, must have been an inadvertent gesture. Or some kind of hack? I've never heard of Todd Day and don't know how it would have gotten started if I never searched for it or intentionally played it. If this happens frequently consider making "seeds" more evident in some way. I have noticed name confusion in the database, where two very different artists are jumbled together under the same name.

I will try. It's usually on my PC and I'm not always close enough.

It won't let me post a picture or I would send you a screenshot.  Where do you want me to post it to?

I have tried to post a picture with the camera icon for a couple of days but it comes up with a weird page wanting a source code and says that I don't have permission to post a picture.  I've tried replying with the email you sent me but not sure you got that.  If it helps the name of the comedy I took the screenshot of was called Swingset and it just actually came up on Pandora again as I was typing this.  Not sure why I don't have permission.

No worries, @Nona.

Instead, can you please let me know the name of the comedy bit, as well as the name of the Comedian in your screenshot?

Also, what station did they play on?

Let me know.

I posted the picture, twice I think.  But the comedian is Darren Streblow and the title starts with Grandparents and it's on the Nona channel with is the only one I have.

Thanks for following up, @Nona.

took a look at your Nona station, and can see the comedy tracks are being pulled from an additional seed that you added: The Bee Gees by Danny McMaster

Danny McMaster appears to be a comedian, and The Bee Gees is the title of his comedy bit you added to the station.

Here is a screenshot of where I am seeing the additional artist that you added to your station:
