Thanks, AdamPandora. In fact, it is just that type of variety that I like. I prefer to have my pop, classical, Spa, Christmas, jazz, etc. on one station and do not consider them undesirable matches. One trouble with having separate stations for each style is that each station must be individually cultivated. I don't want to listen to only one genre at a time to cultivate them. While I do use shuffle, it is counter productive to use up-thumbs on shuffle because I can't see which station a song is playing from and eventually the stations will begin to merge together. Since Pandora is not yet allowing me to create a station from my playlist, it seems the best way I can provide myself with the variety I want is to have a station, or shuffled stations, with a wide variety of seeds but to never use up-thumbs, Rather, take any new song I like and add it as a seed.
