Hi

I accidentally added a radio station for someone I really didn't want to but can't find a way to delete them from my list

Can anyone please help and tell me how to?

We are aware of the high demand for this issue. I should point out though that as things stand created stations don't remain on your account forever. New ones will push the older ones out, so you'll have a maximum of 20 at any one time.

 

I hope that clears things up a little.

Re: Delete radio station

If your priority is radio then Pandora will be perfect for you. I prefer having total control over what I listen to and access to a huge music base.

Re: Delete radio station

I remember someone telling me about this when the feature was first added. Due to the way Spotify handles the radio stations, you always have to have at least one. If you create a new station, you will then be able to remove that one.

Re: Delete radio station

I just started checking out this service, and can't believe how hard it is to find info. This is one of the things that I spent WAY TOO LONG looking for how to do it- I'd never have imagined that it wasn't possible.

 

The worst part is that I didn't even add these stations to mine. I just clicked on the genre to check it out, and viola: it's a new station of mine. That really sucks, because I HATED the music.

 

How can I check genres/artists/songs out without being stuck with it? How can I understand how the Facebook integration works? I don't know WHAT I'm sharing right now, or with who. There's no documentation, as you know; If you need to focus your attention and budget on programming, can't you at least start a wiki for other helpful users to start filling in the blanks for you? I'm quite sure they would gladly.

Re: Delete radio station

I share the flabergasted annoyance of the dozens of other people who have commented on this.

 

Also, and with all due respect to the complexity that perhaps exists in addressing this, to suggest that one can somehow solve the inherent annoyance of the problem by simply adding more stations and thereby "pushing" the others off the list misses the issue completely.  

 

First off, I don't want to create 20 stations to delete the inadvertent ones created by bad design.  I also assume stations will be "pushed off" in the order they were created.  So if I've got 3 stations I want to keep and then inadvertently create a bad one, I'll have to push off my 3 desired stations before I can knock off the bad one.

Re: Delete radio station

[ Edited ]

Spotify has known about the huge level of customer demand to delete (and rename) radio stations a very long time. You can see "delete radio stations" as #10 below. This is the top 10 requested changes for Spotify, for all time. And these features have been on this top list for over a year and not a single one of them has been implemented.

 

 

 

Unfortunately, this leaves the Spotify support personnel with nothing to give the customers except terrible things like "make 20 more radio stations to get rid of the one you just made by mistake".

 

Obviously this is not a solution, but with Spotify product management not listening to their customers and not having the developers put this ever so simple fix in the code, it is the only available "course of action".

 

Which is terrible for everyone, basically. There is no solution and no likelihood of there ever being a solution.

Re: Delete radio station

totally agree, and as a new user am surprised.  how was this not a very, very basic UI/design consideration?? 

 

suggests serious, disconcerting engineering and coding issues if a simple delete cannot be implemented easily.  hmmm....
