I appreciate your help, but that isn't the way to create the Artist collection I am trying to do. I want "Everything" from artists of my choices from multiple genres that I can create my own "station". The reasoning is that I may not have heard everything from an artist that they have, but I love the artists work, and I want to hear everything, as part of the mix of all the other artists I listen to, from MULTIPLE Genres. I listen to Christian, Classic Rock, Country. Bluegrass, Jazz, Blues etc. in a total mix. I want to add artists I enjoy to this mix with ALL their music. My current station mix does not do this, nor allow it. I had hoped PREMIUM would allow that, but it does not allow you to select everything by artist, you have to add singles, albums, etc individually to your "Collection" which is an improbable task, as I started doing that a little last night and realized it would literally take me YEARS to do that for each of the hundreds or artists I enjoy from the multiple genres I enjoy. It makes no sense, just like when I thumbs up a song, if you listen to a different station, your thumbs up doesn't count. Nothing is artist centric! I consider this bad program logic.

So yesterday I broke down and decided to go "Premium" because I wanted better control of selecting specific Artists and their ENTIRE music catalogs. I had hopes of making better "Stations" to enjoy the multiple genre's of music I listen to.
It is ridiculous to me that the way Pandora wants you to add an artist is by selecting a single or album to "add" to my collection. But then you have no way of listening to that Artist's entire music catalog, or functionally adding ALL their music to a "Station".
It is WAY TOO difficult to do this when other music services make this a basic function. I don't want to LITERALLY add thousands of albums, singles, from hundreds or thousands of artists that I have been listening to on Pandora for last 12+ years.
It took me many years and adding or deleting stations to get a semi-decent shuffle of genres and artists while using the basic paid version of Pandora. I had hoped that going premium would offer advantages that I didn't have with the basic paid level of service.
It does not look like their is any "EASY" way of doing what I want, and in reality, I would have to add thousands of artists etc to get what I already have done with the basic paid version.
I most likely will have to drop Pandora entirely after my paid 6 Month trial of "Premium" is done. It is just too frustrating to add so much to get what should be so much simpler........
