Thanks for your suggestion. I am all in for that where artists can participate in broadcasting their playlists and have the option to listen to it later if we could not participate in live broadcast.
I recently heard a Pandora Stories segment with the Rascal Flatts band members. It was about 30 minutes where they talked about the background of some of their hits and how they came about. It was really enjoyable and I sent a message into Pandora Support about having more of these in the future with artists or updates with current Artists we follow. I will copy and paste the Pandora Support message that may be of interest to you since Pandora Stories are setup from time to time.
Thanks for writing in. We are so happy to hear that you're enjoying Pandora Stories! Pandora Story playlists are sets of music or comedy tracks that include Voice Tracks from various hosts. These Voice Tracks are messages recorded by artists, creators, and featured guests that add context or commentary to your Pandora Stories listening experience. Only Pandora Premium subscribers can access these playlists directly, however; if you're not a Premium subscriber, you can listen to a playlist after viewing a short advertisement. Once you're in Pandora Premium, Pandora Stories will be recommended for you based on your listening habits. You can find them in the Featured Playlists section of Browse, as well as via Search. Unlike other curated playlists, Pandora Stories will have a "talking head" icon alongside the playlist title. When you open a Story, click Collect on the menu bar to save the program to your collection. You can also download the Story for offline listening by selecting Download from the menu. In the meantime, I've passed along your feedback regarding the availability of this feature across more devices. It's very helpful as we work towards improving Pandora!
Hope this helps.
