@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.....)

@Keysean2 While there is no guarantee that these albums will be made available, I can assure you that @AlyssaPandora was able to pass your suggestions along to our curation team for further review.

Hope this helps clarify!

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.
