When I'm shaping a Pandora station, I have a definite idea of what I want to hear depending on my mood and the purpose for the music (i.e. mellow music for nighttime; intense, motivating music for runs, etc). But despite my efforts to tailor my stations to avoid certain types of music that don't mesh with the sound palate of the station in question, I still have to thumb down pretty frequently most of the time. For example, I would like my Jeff Williams Radio to mostly contain a pretty eclectic mix of electronica and rock with jazzy _influences_, but every third song that comes up is an actual jazz recording. I love jazz, but only in my jazz stations. Has anyone found a way to deal with this annoying shortcoming of the thumbs-down feature?
