Hey folks and welcome to add Kudos to my idea!
I'm a very big fan of Spotify and thanks already for awesome Android app I use everyday. However Spotify's radio on desktop and mobile keeps repeating same artists over and over all day every day forever and ever no matter what radio from playlist, song or artist you're listen. It's actually more crappy radio than this commercial crap when you open your FM radio and listening to Alexandra Stan 100 times in day.
What I would like to see is Advanced radio. As you can see, radio played to me in 25 minutes Irina two times and this is these days normal to radio in Spotify. This radio just repeats same artists many time in one hour, so I'm tired to this radio station in less than one hour... And no matter what radio you are listening. I want to see a better variety in music, because you have over 20 Million songs. Why you play the same all the time?
Radio for PC is a little bit better:
Can Spotify improve radio?
All I asking is advanced radio with MORE VARIETY. I don't need the radio that plays the same content all day & night long. I need variety and I know you have it: over 20 Million songs.
Do not make this radio too commercial. All I asking. Now add your Kudos.
PS: If I want to listen radio like this, I can turn on my FM radio... So no need to pay anything for radio in this quality. Do a better radio for product I pay monthly-basis. Many thanks.

Hey @hpguru we wanted to let you know we're marking this as 'Case Closed' since it's had the status 'Not Right Now' for over 3 years. We don't have any plans to restrict an artist from being played twice in an hour when using Spotify Radio. We want to be very transparent about what we might build in the Idea Exchange and what's off the table. Keep an eye here for further updates about what's coming at Spotify!
