Hi there, @Rallenz. 👋
Thanks for your post about this.
Were you listening to a genre station and using a mode when this happened?
If so, what's the name of the station?
Let me know. 🎧
Hi there, @Rallenz. 👋
Thanks for getting back to me. Sounds like you're referencing the modes on your stations.
Something to note, Pandora Modes are only available on our website, mobile devices, and the Sonos app, but we have let our product team know you'd be interested in seeing this on other devices.
Genre stations like Pop Fitness or Motown Radio are created and curated by Pandora. Sometimes we might make changes to improve the station experience that can result in some or all modes no longer being available. That being said, there are various modes available across different stations.
I just launched your account and was able to see these modes available for your Bonnie Raitt Radio under "Tune Your Station".
Whatever Mode you choose, make sure you continue to use your Thumbs. Thumbs will continue to influence your station regardless of what Mode you're listening in.
So giving a Thumbs Up in Newly Released Mode will tell My Station to play more new music for you. As always, you have the ability to edit any unwanted Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down in your station details.
Here's a screenshot of your current station modes (to the right of the album art):
I hope this information is helpful, and that you're enjoying the tunes 🎶
Thanks, but....the 'issue' remains....when I return to Pandora, and the Bonnie Raitt station, as you show on the screen shot, the screen does NOT show that I am in "Energy Boost" in fact, "Energy Boost" is nowhere to be seen. Am I correct? (I mistakenly said I was in Relax Mode, but in fact I was in Energy Boost).
That said, this am, (now) I changed stations, and voila! All Fine Tune options are there, including Energy Boost!
Again, thanks much for responding. Really a big help.

Hey, @Rallenz. 👋
No problem at all - I'm always happy to help where I can.
I do see that Energy Boost mode isn't an available option on your Bonnie Raitt Radio station.
Please keep in mind, not all Pandora Modes will be available on every station.
In the meantime, there are other modes you can try out to enhance your listening experience:
Since licensing regulations require a Pandora Premium subscription in order to be able to listen to your station in "Artist Only" mode, free listeners and Pandora Plus subscribers will be able to view an advertisement in order to initiate a complimentary Premium Access session. Those that do will also have access to Pandora Premium's other features during their Premium Access session. 🎧
