Remove existing radio stations from recommended stations.

I love Spotify Radio, and so I want to try more different stations. But the recommended stations pretty much shows what I listen a lot and therefore already have made stations for. Can't the recommend function first check what I already have and leave those out?

The 'recommended stations' list contains a bunch of artists I am not even slightly interested in ... but there is no way to ignore or remove these recommendations.

The recommended stations are generated based on your recent listening activity as far as I know.

Would be useful to know when the recommendations get updated. I've only installed Spotify today - the recommendations are clearly not based on my local tunes, and since I've only just started using Spotify this afternoon can't be based on streaming usage.

 

Just thought it a bit strange that I can't click on any of the recommendations and say 'not interested' ...

I agree with karatemonkey.

 

Why do I have to see recommendations I do not have the slightest interested in.

 

I took out a Premium subscription to avoid ad's and spamming suggestions. 

 

If this isn't modified very soon then Google Play here I come.

 

Shame really the rest of the new app is rather good.

Just having a look, the suggestions should be personalised to you like the Discover tab?

I don't think they are based on previous recommondations...I don't care to ever listen to ColdPlay, Arianna Grande or Rhinna, but that's what's being offered today.

 

I have a feeling it's a case where they are getting paid to promote artists, so we call get to "benefit" from that.
