My "Pop and Hip Hop Power Workout Radio" station over the last week or so hasn't played any of my older thumbs up, and seems like a different station (more rap, minimal latin music). How do I get it back to how it was? Do I need to create a new station? I previously really liked this station, but it isn't reliable now.
Genre stations, such as "Today's Hits" or "Pop and Hip Hop Power Workout Radio," are stations created and curated by Pandora, and they often include more mainstream artists and songs.
As an alternative, we recommend creating your own station, using an artist or song that you think best represents a particular genre. Then use Thumbs to help guide the station you are trying to create.
Additionally, you may Add Variety to the station you create, in order to include other artists or songs you'd like to influence your station.
Keep in mind, each seed you add will inspire hundreds of other songs, so a little variety goes a long way. If you don't like the direction your station is headed, you can always edit your station seeds and Thumbs through the Station Details.
That said, when you're listening from a computer, mobile device or the Sonos app, you can access Pandora Modes to customize your station experience. You can pick different modes like Crowd Faves, Discovery and Deep Cuts. Let me know if you'd like more information about that.
