Pandora until leaving the U.S. for the U.K.
Pandora is not available in the U.K., so I am now starting to use
Spotify. I only use/used either on a
Windows desktop computer.
Pandora allows you to create your own station.
Pandora then suggests songs to add to the station. You vote thumbs up on suggested songs you like. You can also add variety to the station by requesting particular artists be added or requesting addition of artists with similar styles. I cannot figure out how to do that in
Well, actually I have figured out how to start a station in
Spotify based on a specific song. Then similar songs are suggested and I get to vote thumbs up if I like them. The problem is that the suggested songs are so similar to each other that they are almost clones.
My taste in music is very eclectic and I want a lot of variety in my station. I have created a list of several hundred songs in
YOUR MUSIC, but these songs are not in a playlist or radio station.
Can I create a radio station and add all of the songs under
YOUR MUSIC to that single radio station, thereby forcing
Spotify to suggest a greater variety of songs for possible inclusion to the station?
I did try creating a playlist of six songs as a test, but
Spotify did not suggest additional songs for inclusion to the playlist. Rather
Spotify just shuffled the same six songs around over and over.
Thanks for any advice on how to get
Spotify to suggest a wide variety of songs for inclusion to a single radio station. I would rather not create multiple stations each devoted to songs of a specific genre.
