Hey all, first off I love Spotify. Spotify constantly surpasses my expectations For finding new music. There is one question I have, and it's in regards to the song radios. Recently I noticed that when you create a song radio, it creates about a 30 song playlist that you can't edit. I was wondering if this is permanent or if I can revert to the previous version of Spotify because that's how I found most of my music, by editing don't radio stations.
Since I'm here, I'm also curious about the algorithms used to find similar songs in a radio, considering the same few artists continually show up with different types of songs rather similar types of songs. Who knows, maybe I'm paranoid. Regardless great app, thanks to anyone who can help.

I'm guessing it's got something to do with that "stations" app they're testing out. I found a hack in another thread too - if you DRAG a song to the "Radio" tab on the left in desktop, it shows you the real song radio that isn't a playlist. From there you can follow it and it'll add it to your stations instead of making a playlist. But if at any point you right click on a song and hit "go to song radio" it just shows you a playlist, not the true song radio. The only way to get there is by dragging. Even clicking on the now-saved "station" takes you back to the playlist view.
I found this out because I was irritated that there was no way to put anything in the "stations" tab - adding a song radio just put another playlist in the left column, which is not the functionality I wanted. The dragging method works (for now).
That said, they're obviously in the middle of re-jiggering everything and aren't being communicative about it.
