Discover Mode for Radio

I'd like to be able to toggle on/off a 'Music Discovery' setting whilst listening to a Spotify Radio Station.

 

Sometimes I'm happy to hear artists repeated in a Spotify radio station, but sometimes I just want to hear something new.

 

Instead of changing the radio station algorithm to never repeat artists, like some forum members have suggested, how about letting the user opti-in to Discovery Mode.

 

It could be implemented into the GUI with a subtle toggle that appears next to the current radio station title.

Very nice idea! This is actually one of the features I've been waiting for, as radio for me is all about discovering new music. +1 kudo

Good idea. Often times I find myself not wanting to "like" a song from radio because improving the station usually means that that artist just becomes overplayed or if I dislike them, it never plays again. I really think the like/dislike system is fundamentally flawed currently

 In this day and age of P2P, merely accumulating a lot of music isn't hard. The point of subscription services like Spotify, at least for me, is that they allow one to discover new and/or unfamilliar music. An option to have  radio stations that use playlists fairly loosely as base on which to expand would be great. When i like a artist, song, or a genre, I fequently look he/she/it it up on Amazon.com's Listmania!, where users give reccomendations, which often range far and wide. An option for more diverse spotify radio-play would be great, and I'd also welcome an option allowing radio-play diversity to be modified, directly or indirectly, by fellow listeners' suggestions, à-la Listmania!

Whats happening with this great idea? I would really like to listen to radio based on playlists without the songs that the playlists contain.
