Hearing out of place tracks on station

I come across the same thing on the Bubblegum Oldies station. I have thumb down on every religious song that comes on. I seem to get more religious songs. This seems to be a new problem in the last six months or so. I can't provide any specific on the religious songs, as there are numerous.

Can you tell me what seed caused this song to play on 9/15/22 at 3:10 pm? I did thumb down this song. I renamed the station today to Piano, Acoustic Guitar & Ambient Music.

@lyradd I took a look at your Piano & Ambient Music Radio station, and can see that particular song was pulled from an additional seed that you added:  I Often Dream Of Trains by Robyn Hitchcock

Here is a screenshot of where I am seeing the additional seed 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!

OK... here we are Sept 25 and this is happening again. I've been sitting here listening to my years old David Gray station and have heard (and down-thumbed) 3 religious songs in about 45 minutes. What the heck! 

Once again, I followed the directions for how to resolve out of place songs. I checked the entire list of up-thumbed songs and verified none of them are gospel. I don't have any thing other than David Gray listed under the "Station Created From" listing.

What did the engineering team say about this when you helpfully asked them about it last time I brought this to your attention?

Meanwhile, yes, I will continue to down-thumb religious songs on my years old play list.

Last three weeks or so getting unwanted religious tracks playing on my "New Age" station. I have had this station for years and have made no changes to the seeds. I also scanned the liked songs and could not find anything out of place there as well. I hit the thumbs down button but they keep coming.

Here is a screenshot of the last one to pop up.

@BobT737 We've made a small change that should help.

Please try again and if you continue to see out of place tracks on your New Age station, please send me an additional screenshot of the next one that plays.

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝

Hello,

When listening to Imagine Dragons radio, I give the out of place childrens sons a thumbs down. I also listen to My station tab.

Songs such as “the wheels on the bud go round and round” with children singing..

“There’s a dinasour,
Knocking at my door!”

“ABCD EFG… children singing…these are just a few. Some Imagine Dragons and normal music still play in between. Does not make sense. I’ve been going out of my way to give thumbs up to the normal songs hoping to change the algorithm … does not seem to help.

Im a middle school art teacher and I do play this station in my class room. I have played this station for years… past couple weeks the station seems to be hijacked.

It appears When I listen to it at the gym… no children's music, but I do listen to other stations as well.

Next time I will take a screen shot.

Thank you for your reply!

I thought I'd try listening again, found Instrumental Chill Radio. What do I hear... a tune with weird vocals! Didn't think it could get that bad. I guess it's hopeless.

Hello Adam,

Since there are so many people with the same concern, here is a suggestion:

Add an option to "Never Play Artists Not In My Thumbs Up List". When I am listening to background type music while I am working, having a Techno song come on requires me to get up and hit Thumbs Down. I do appreciate other artists suggestions I have never heard on my other stations however, so this would solve it for me and many others I feel.

Thank you,

Joe

So is there no actual solution to this problem? 

I keep having country music play during shuffle, despite having no country stations. I've tried to look through my stations ans thumbs up, however nothing looks like it should be causing this.

Screenshot_20221011-121223_Pandora.jpg

 for example this song that came up today during shuffle that doesn't seem to match any category I have. 

@AdamPandora 

And here it is again at 12:36pm. Another unwanted song from an unwanted genre.  

Screenshot_20221011-123653_Pandora.jpg

@AdamPandora another undesired artist...

Yes, I was able to give these a Thumbs down. I refered to the stations thumbs-down list to give you this^.

As can be seen in the screenshots from my phone, these were all while listening via "My Station" mode

 

*ATTENTION*  I've also included some screenshots of songs that WERE supposed to be played & it played the piece from The Grudge 2 after playing many of the correct, Thumbs UP'd ones(visibly in the screenshots).  This is to give yall a quick idea of the kind of music the station is SUPPOSED to play.

Seriously guys, this screw up is almost as bad as listening to Christian hymns & then someone blasting Satanic Death Metal music over it.  COMPLETELY the opposite of what I've been led to believe is the point of the Music Genome Project. -_-

@jesswalker27 Those tracks were all recommended on Shuffle from two stations you have collected:

  • 30 Seconds to Mars Radio
  • Today's Alternative Radio

Screen Shot 2022-10-11 at 11.48.53 AM.png

Screen Shot 2022-10-11 at 11.48.26 AM.png

I recommend removing those stations from your Shuffle mix, or from your collection entirely to resolve the issue.

Hope this helps!

@FrostLab took a look at your Sunday Appropriate station, and can see the out of place tracks are being pulled from a couple of seeds that you've added: Allan Zavod

Ok, so is there more than one Allan Zavod?? There's this guy & this guy.  How do I get the music from the second one to be seeded in this station?(Particularly from his "24 Sacred Hymns for Missionaries' album)  That album doesn't seem to show up in the former Allan's discography there on the Wiki, nor do I see any songs from it when trying to add such seeds to the station. :S

I have removed the seed's you pointed me to, we'll see how it goes from here.  Thx for your time!

 

Edit: Yea, same guy, though I don't understand how there's an album released in 2020 with him as artist when he died 2016🤔.  Shame none of his music on the aforementioned hymns for missionaries album seems to be in the Music Genome Project. 😒   It's been several hours now issue free.  Many Thx!
