I have some Christmas stations selected for my current shuffle, and I noticed songs are playing from stations that are not currently selected to be shuffled. The screen shots show the stations the songs are a part of, and that those stations are not currently part of my selected shuffle stations. This has been happening ever since I selected all my Christmas stations and unselected the other ones.
Best tech-savvy solution: Sign out of all sessions. All of them. Are your apps updated to the most current version? MAKE SURE OF IT. Then, login to one single session on a single device for at least 24 hours: no other devices, only one. Set all your parameters to your liking. As you add in more devices (literally only one per day over an entire week) note each day whether your Pandora behavior changes in a negative fashion.
If/when that happens, definitely report that here. And, honestly, keep a journal so that you can very specifically and technically report back on your experience. Consider whether you need that specific (erratic?) device login at all, since it may be effecting the way you prefer Pandora to handle your preferences.
@KRabbipal I created a separate thread with your post since you are experiencing a different issue.
I've escalated your feedback over to our engineering team so they can further investigate.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime.
@KRabbipal Always happy to help.
This thread you are commenting on is the new thread I created for you: Custom Shuffle starts playing stations not selected
Hi, @tlee54. 👋
Sorry for any confusion. A thread was separated from a different thread that @KRabbipal originally posted in. When listeners report issues, sometimes threads need to be separated because the issues are different.
I do see that you have your custom shuffle selection for holiday stations. After taking a look - there are a few songs that popped up that don't match your holiday selection.
I've gone ahead and reported this over to our engineering team on your behalf. Thanks for your patience while they look into this. 🎧
I try to listen to two different stations on shuffle. It'll work good for about 20-30 minutes, but then it will start playing music from other stations that I did not pick. I'm listening on an Android phone, T-Mobile revvl 5g.

Our engineering team is aware of this issue and are currently looking into it.
I've added your feedback to the ticket we have open with them as well so they can further investigate.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
I got a notification that the previous reply was accepted as a solution to this issue? I don't think it has been solved yet though, so just wanted to make sure this thread remained opened until it was resolved.
@scQue814 Could you tell me a bit more about what is happening? Are you listening to Pandora on a computer or on a device?
Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
Hi there, @KPH. 👋
Sorry to hear that is happening.
Could you share more about how you're listening when this occurs?
Let me know. 🎧
Same problem, you pay for the upgrade, but the features don't work.
How can I get just my Christmas stations? I have DE-SELECTED all others, yet they keep playing. Someone asked this EXACT question back on the 8th. No real answer, just a run around, started a new thread, no answers. This isn't that hard. Why is custom shuffle playing the stations that are not selected?
Never mind. I was trying to play Christmas music on Christmas day. I wonder if pandora is worth the money I spend. I had been looking forward to my Christmas music ever since I signed up for plus. I had a nice selection of Christmas station to give me a big variety of songs, but it kept playing the UNSELECTED stations. I switched to KOSI 101.1
Well now that Christmas is over I unselected all my Christmas stations from my shuffle, and now I'm getting more Christmas music than I was before when I had only Christmas stations selected. Good times. ♀️
In November I created a mix of holiday stations to play on Shuffle. Today I changed my Shuffle back to my non-holiday stations. I clicked a station to get off Shuffle, then picked the new mix to use and clicked on Shuffle once again. Sadly, it went right back to my Christmas mix of songs even though I do not have one Christmas Station picked to Shuffle.
I am using Pandora on a PC, Windows 10 with Chrome. I went through this when I created the Christmas Shuffle in November, but I can not remember how I finally got it to play the new mix of music. HELP PLEASE!
