It seems... only Jimmy Reed Radio plays Jimmy Reed

blues-sevenfold
Diamond in the Rough

This might also be an issue for other artists (I dunno) - but, as Jimmy Reed is my favourite blues artist, this has been noticeable for me.

Not counting Scary Halloween Sounds (which doesn't play like a radio station), I have nine permanent stations in My Collections. It seems Jimmy Reed Radio is the only station to play Jimmy Reed. I don't have any blues music on Nature Sounds Radio (all nature ambient), Halloween Radio (Halloween rock and Halloween ambient), and Rock Variety Radio (rock music only) - so I wouldn't expect Jimmy Reed on those stations.

I'm currently listening to Thumbprint Radio, and I've yet to hear Jimmy Reed get played. Remaining stations are Blues Variety Radio (blues music only), Charlie Musselwhite Radio (blues music only), Five Finger Death Punch Radio (rock and blues), and Avenged Sevenfold Radio (rock and blues). I also temporarily had a station created from Howlin' Wolf and seeded with Little Walter and Snooky Pryor (all artists similar to Jimmy Reed), and no Jimmy Reed showed up on that station - except for that one song attributed to "Jimmy Reed Baby".

I suppose adding Jimmy Reed as a seed to those stations could resolve it, but it shouldn't have to be necessary.
