Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking at various music services. What I want is something similar to Pandora's radio based on artist followed by fine-tuning with thumbs up/down combined with a much larger catalog and the ability to also do on-demand playing of tracks and albums.

I was hoping Spotify might work, but it's unclear how their radio feature works, can I seed it with an track or just an artist? Can I later fine-tune the selection by rating the currently playing track up or down?

For those who are voting to close... I specifically asked on the SU moderators chat channel and one person there told me this was ok before I posted. –  kbyrd Dec 14 '11 at 22:31
    
That was my bad. I thought you were asking about a feature already in the Spotify application. Also, I am not a moderator. I'm sorry for the confusion. :( –  iglvzx Dec 15 '11 at 5:18
    
That's cool. If the question should be moved, I'm happy with that. I just don't know which SE site it should go on. –  kbyrd Dec 15 '11 at 14:06

No. They are planning on releasing one but they do not currently.

UPDATE:

Apparently it is already live, actually, in the preview version of the Spotify app. Google search shows it's being panned in reviews: https://www.google.com/search?q=spotify+radio+service

Do you have references for these plans, like a roadmap? –  Daniel Beck Dec 14 '11 at 21:56
    
    
Does it allow fine-tuning? –  kbyrd Dec 14 '11 at 22:30
    
I don't know... –  music2myear Dec 14 '11 at 22:52
