Hearing out of place tracks on station

Was taken here from another link that said that thread was closed and the issue resolved. For at least the last 3 days my kids Disney the lion king channel has been going way off channel. Lots of spiritual music, touching calm liquid mind,Enya, Neal Schon bandelero, Weird show tunes now where near associated with anything Disney. As a parent I’m concerned with other threads mentioning explicit songs showing up.

Here's a sample (bottom image) of the thumbs downed songs for my 80s country station. I can't figure out what "seed" these are related to. I'm not in a special mode. I never thumbs up anything at this point because it's been a stable station for over a decade. This started 3-4 weeks ago and it's now every third song or so that's way off base. It is in fact happening again, literally right now, as I'm typing (top image, 5:51 pm). I'm able to thumbs down the tracks, but not really interested in babysitting the station in that way.

Thanks for sending that over, @dltheisinger.

took a look at your 80s Country station, and can see the following out of place tracks showing in your screenshot above are being pulled from a song seed that you added - Looking For Love (In All The Wrong Places) by Marc Almond

  • Promises, Promises by Naked Eyes
  • The Order of Death by Public Image Ltd
  • Haunted When The Minutes Drag (USA Edit) by Love And Rockets
  • Images Of Heaven by Peter Godwin
  • Chains of Love by Erasure
  • Stand The Pain by And One

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

I recommend deleting that song seed to get your station back on track.

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. Are you able to see when that seed was added? I haven't edited the station in recent memory, so I'm curious why this issue just started.

@dltheisinger I'm not able to see the exact date the seed was added.

This being said, removing it from your station should resolve the issue.

If any other out of place tracks continue to play on your station, definitely continue to give them a thumbs down, and send me an additional screenshot so that I can further investigate.

In the meantime, enjoy the music!

Once in a while a channel goes completely off track and it's very hard to retrain it. Most recently my favorite channel that i had perfectly curated for years absolutely lost it's mind. Pandora still doesn't have a way to reset a channel either.

Following up again.

 

I have just created stations based on the following songs, and I'm still getting the wrong genre:

Walk Away by Epidemic: This song is hard rock/post-grunge, but I'm getting rap music. https://www.pandora.com/artist/epidemic/epidemic/walk-away/TRwbPrmt7btj47Z

 

If Only Tears Could Bring You Back by Midnight Sons: This song is a pop ballad, but I'm getting folk rock.

https://www.pandora.com/artist/midnight-sons/ready-for-the-death-ride/if-only-tears-could-bring-you-...

 

No by Bulldog: This song is English-language blues rock, but I'm getting Spanish-language punk rock. https://www.pandora.com/artist/bulldog/ready-for-the-death-ride/no/TRckXvKf3bdn23Z

 

Dream by Forest for the Trees: This song is psychedelic trip-hop, but I'm getting folk music. https://www.pandora.com/artist/forest-for-the-trees/songs-from-the-underworld/dream/TRwq7xJXhJPv672

Okay, I just updated my last post with a link to each song, and the artists in question.

Here are all my reports for April 12.

On "If Only Tears Could Bring You Back", I thumbed down two folk rock songs. I should be hearing pop ballads. https://www.pandora.com/station/90623949532038077

On "Dream", I thumbed down three folk-rock songs. I should be hearing psychedelic trip-hop. https://www.pandora.com/station/165932799453299381

On "Walk Away", I thumbed down the song "No Rearview" by Starlito, which is rap. I should be hearing 2000's rock music. https://www.pandora.com/station/4636058931488936819

On "No", I thumbed down the song "Morena Ai, Ai" by Bandalusa, which is a Portuguese song. I should be hearing English-language blues rock. https://www.pandora.com/station/4709632945335096179

All four songs should be re-analyzed for the Music Genome Project.

took a look at your Offbeat Radio station, and can see the holiday tracks are being pulled from an additional seed that you added: Christmas

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

To resolve this, I've gone ahead and removed the Christmas seed from your station.

Let me know if you continue to experience issues with this down the line.

@wooper4000 Thanks for following up with that information.

took a look at your Awesome Music station, and can see the out of place tracks you mentioned are being pulled from a song seed that you added - Theme (From "Critical Role") by Jason Charles Miller

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

Agree completely.  I have the exact same issue.   10+ years of curating by thumbs up and down suddenly lost.  I listen to 'Classical for Studying' while I'm working.  So upsetting that all those years of work to get rid of the stuff I seriously disliked, and here more of what I love - has been lost.  The curation was the only reason I hadn't switch to Spotify.    Does anyone know how to recover this?????
