@Toyo I moved your post over to this existing thread: Songs are Unavailable / Radio Only

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. 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.

Hope this helps explain.

Why cant I listen to some songs again even with a paid subscription? Is says something about licensing or something. .. doesn't stay on screen very long

@daddykassing The reason why some songs will not allow you to replay or even add to a playlist is due to licencing agreement with the artists.

Hi there, @daddykassing. 👋

Nice to see you around the community space. I moved your post over to this existing thread to keep the community space organized: Songs are Unavailable / Radio Only

@UncleBud is correct. 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.

I can't add Eminence Front by the Who to a playlist. Occasionally, I run across this on other songs. Is this a licensing issue on the song?

@gies542 It looks like we have two versions of that track in our library:

You should be able to add the first track linked above to your playlist.

Let me know if you run into any issues with that.

Unavailable songs 

Why are some artist’s songs showing up as Unavailable while others aren’t? I browsed through my collection and saw about a dozen Arch Enemy songs back-to-back that are now unavailable.

This is a bull**ahem**.. Ring-Around-the-Rosie response.. From whoever Adam is..  Some of us, or likely, the majority of subscribersers have been with Pandora.. For a very l9mg time. A.K.A. The reason for their success..

 

We should have no greyed out songs anyplace, at anythime! This type of message is a bull**ahem** lie, which is never an option for listeners or musi hand.. At any **ahem** time ever.

 

It's mousey disingenuous lieing.
