DON'T CHANGE RADIO FUNCTIONALITY.

Why are you changing the way the artist radio stations work? All my followed stations are playlists now and I don't like it. There's limited functionality with a playlist. I can't remove an artist I don't like from these playlists. I can't "thumbs down" something I don't like so I never hear it again. For instance, I don't want 'Veil Of Maya' in my 'Animals As Leaders' station, but they're in Spotify's 'Animals As Leaders' radio playlist and again, I don't like it. The playlist is always the same. Put an mp3 CD in your car (old school, I know) with 50 tracks on it and see if you don't get sick of it in a week. A radio station changes. I know it's basically just a jazzed up playlist, but it changed often. These playlists are locked in and "shuffle play" only goes so far. Also, the radio stations play continuously. More songs load as they play. At the end of the day, the radio stations are 95% of what I use. Fortunately, I can still get at the "old" artist radio stations for now. If this playlist thing becomes a permanent change and I can't get at the normal artist station, I'll be forced to consider canceling my subscription. It was great before. Loved it. I was perfectly happy giving you my hard earned cash every month. But it seems the functionality is changing, so maybe my cash flow is changing too. This playlist radio system is garbage.

 

Also, for the love of DOG let me sort my stations by name. This is basic stuff. SMDH

Bring back normal radio and the + button on the screen so I can easy create a new radio station now I have to go through several steps for something I could just press a + sign for before.

Please bring back custom Radio with thumbs up / down. It's why I dropped Pandora for Spotify.

I agree! I hate the new Radio! I used to be able to build a station around an artist or a song and always felt you should allow a station to be personalized like Pandora by allowing several artists or songs to mold the station more to my taste. Now it is a playlist with no suggestions to improve or add to my library. Also, without the thumbs up/thumbs down, there is no way to enhance the Radio experience! Think Spotify is going in the wrong directions.

Funny enough, you can still use the webplayer for the "old" radio function so it still seems to be there but for some unknown reason was removed from the other players.

 

Alternatively, please just give us the OPTION to go for the pre-designed playlists or the old radio. It was why I moved from Apple Music to Spotify and now this is gone ...
