Comedy stations not playing seeded artist

I've been listening to a few comedy stations, namely Jim Gaffigan, David Spade and Brian Regan.

It's always been the selected comedian's routines, and a great blend of other similar comedians. Lately these stations are playing everything BUT the compedian I've selected. The David Spade station has yet to play anything by David Spade.

What's up with that?!

@armcomdes I understand that it's frustrating not to hear the comedian that you've seeded a station with, but at this time, listeners have limited control over when or how often particular comedians or comedy skits will play on Pandora stations.

If you would like to listen to a particular comedian on-demand, we do offer a solution through Pandora Premium subscriptions and complimentary sessions of Pandora Premium. This service combines our industry leading radio service with on-demand listening.

With Pandora Premium, you can also create customized playlists where you can pick and choose what comedy skits you'd like to listen to. 

Use this link to learn more about upgrading. Alternatively, you can start a complimentary session simply by searching our library for a song or album, and clicking play. This will trigger a short advertisement, after which you can enjoy content on-demand.

I understand the limits of a complimentary subscription, but to experience zero routines from a comedian on a station named after that comedian (David Spade) seems a bit misleading, especially if I was that comedian.

My best resolution was to switch to Spotify. They are giving me more accurate content then I ever experienced on Pandora. We'll see.

Thank you for your clarification.

I agree wholeheartedly with Adam. I try listening to the Ron White station and have yet to hear anything by Ron White. Jeff Foxworthy, and Bill Engvall however ad nauseum. Very frustrating.
