Starting a radio plays song you choose as base

It's annoying that when i get to a song i'm feeling, and i right click and go to "start radio" the radio plays a different song then the one i choose. It would be great if spotify just went right into the radio without skipping or even pausing the current song. Then after that played a new song that sounds similar.

Hey guys, we're happy to say this is implemented for Premium users on any device, and Free users using a desktop or tablet. 

Free users on mobile devices can shuffle songs and start radio stations, streaming on demand is still a Premium-only feature

Thanks for all your feedback!

I like this idea as well. I can use "Choose as current playlist" to achieve a similar result for playlists. I will still hear my current song and any queued songs. I often choose not to use the radio feature simply because I would have to stop listening to the current song.

Starting a radio based on the current song, without stopping its playback but merely enqueuing new tracks

This feature drives me insane, I can't believe it is defaulted to act this. Why would anyone want to go to the effort to find a song they love, put it on, then want to hear songs like it at the expense of unceremoniously skipping the song they love.

 

Please make "Start Radio" add a queue to after the song playing.

Really keen to see this. Just a setting will do it but maybe new right click menu item.

Oh YES!

 

Even better, play the radio from where the track is!

I like Brooky's idea of having a setting. There are already a lot of context menu items.

Napster always used to have this facility before they got eaten by Rhapsody so it must be technically possible. I can't understand why it wasn't built like this in the first place. Who would want to interrupt a favourite track to switch on the radio function?
