Thank you for asking this! This is literally my biggest gripe with Pandora. I have a friend who said it's a more "shuffled" experience if you have more fine-tuned stations and then may a shuffled playlist of those stations. Another answer in this thread said stations work best with 3-4 seeds max! (I'm guilty of collecting "variety" and having stations with 10 or 15 seeds... and then having a listening experience of 4 big band songs, followed by 4 house/techno songs, then 4 spanish guitar songs, then 4 classic rock, all day! ) Disclosure: friend and I are both die-hard pandora adherents, having found and played around with the Music Genome Project in roughly 2001, then using pandora and gifting each other the premium service every year since it was a thing you could buy! We also share playlists and generally love to hear new music all the time!
