@vettersout Nice to see you around the community!

Although the majority of the songs in our collection will be eligible to be played without restrictions, you may encounter a portion of songs that are unavailable or labeled "Radio Only" due to our current licensing restrictions (as you noted). In the meantime, you can create a station that will play similar songs and artists, based on an artist or a particular song.

We are continuously working on increasing the amount of songs which can be played on stations, on-demand, or offline. Our intention is to provide enough music you enjoy to avoid any inconvenience around this.

While your response to the question might seem to answer it, it doesn't talk about the fact the user asked about a "Large" amount songs unavailable.  They also mentioned "Recently".

It seems that in the last 6 months there have been a lot MY songs marked unavailable as well - This points to something more going on behind the scenes.  Why have so many songs disappeared from pandora in such a short amount of time. (I've been using the service for over 10 years.....)

This is a major disappointment as I am trying hard to drop YouTube music and transition to Pandora. Not only are MANY songs and albums labeled NOT AVAILABLE, there's also no utility for uploading songs and albums not available on Pandora, which I can do with YouTube music. I hope this changes soon. Pandora has been around long enough now that I would think you guys would have figured all this out by now.

I have been paying for Premium Pandora for years and like the others I am concerned about the amount of songs/albums that I have collected/downloaded that are not available even when other songs in the same album are. This shouldn't be a problem as other streaming service do not seem to have the same problem.  I used to enjoy just choosing as song and it be available.

I was wondering how is it that I pay for Premium and a lot of my favorite songs are the ones I can't listen to because of restrictions. Ex : Maroon 5 Woman,  Secret Weapon - Must be the Music, Zac Brown - Chicken Fried etc.. etc.. I mean it just doesn't feel right to put music in jail. The only option with these songs is to start a radio station. But what about for the people like me who just want to hit that song at that moment using "Premium"? 🤔 Comments??

WOW because that's EXACTLY the problem. I would trade in so many of the **ahem** music that is readily available, to unlock the restricted ones 😅

The Turtles are listed as a station, but none of their singles or albums are available. 

Why?

@rwessley Unfortunately, sometimes an artist may choose not to make their music available on Pandora, and we respect their wishes.

As a result, you won't be able to hear any of their tracks at this time. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

If you'd like, I'd be happy to suggest some similar artists you can find on Pandora. Just let me know.

For now, I hope this helps clarify. Thanks for listening!
