Altho I have faithfully followed the instructions to add variety/new artists to my station, I never hear them. I seem to hear the same 20 or so songs over and over. How do I fix this? As best I can tell this isn't a genre station and the "add variety" button isn't greyed out.
Pandora, you dont get it!
It's not that we want to hear 'less' of an artist. We want to hear more similar suggestions in between, like it was in the beginning....
Pandora had become something completely different now so I'd rather just buy albums every month instead of paying for a "playlist"
Get it together Pandora staff, or you're gonna crash!
Probably better off spending the money we spend on the Pandora subscription on actually buying the albums. My Pandora shuffle just plays the same songs as if it were an iTunes playlist. Pandora is starting to make me hate the artists i used to live by over playing the same songs every day. That's not healthy for marketing music! Pandora is a bunch of nerds who probably don't even like music. They're just trying to make money offv the music industry. I'm going to cancel my Pandora subscription for good for that reason.

I tried all of the above. Plays the same songs everyday. Same song several times per day. This is why I don't listen to FM. Some jack **ahem** in an office wants to play me the hits over and over and over. Just put the album on and hit random but no they play same song. I'm switching to something
I just canceled my subscription. Despite having hundreds of stations, the shuffle function just plays the same artists and songs over and over and over again. It's maddening. Especially since that was to me the biggest selling point over other services. And since this clearly has been an issue for the longest time.
I subscribed to Pandora because of its superior algorithms to provide music similar to a chosen artist or song. New selections would be injected every week - keeping the stations fresh with a minimum of repeats.This has been wonderfully true until a couple of months ago.
Now I get 95% the same selections with an occasional new selection inserted. Could your robot selector be slacking off - has COVID - OR is it throttled back for $4.99/mo subscribers - OR worse yet has Pandora's new owners cut back on the main reason I use Pandora?
Recently, I’ve been noticing whenever I listen to any of my stations, the same song would play again several songs later.
For example, I listened to “Wall of Death” by The Prodigy on my The Prodigy station and it the played again about 7 songs later. Even when I listened to my Alice In Chains station last Friday, the same songs were playing again after several tracks later. My network connection is fine so I doubt that’s the issue.
It’s rather annoying so I’m hoping this gets fixed.
Hi @SLjimbolian 👋
I moved your post over to this existing thread: Station Repetition
Check out the accepted solution to this thread for instructions on how you can improve your station if it is getting too repetitive.
Hope this helps!
I don't think my problem is specific to "Station Repetition".
I mean just now I listened to "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" by Jeff Beck, then it played a song by Return To Forever, and after that it went straight back to "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" by Jeff Beck. And the thing is that song wasn't even thumbs upped.
I see this more of a technical issue than something with my station preferences.
