My Question or Issue
I can't get the app to play radio stations. I click on the dots, select radio but I get a message saying "This playlist was deleted" - have I done something wrong? (I'm newly converted to Spotify)
thanks for reaching out to the Spotify Community !
I would like to point this thread out, discussing the radio playlist feature just so you'd have a bit more knowledge on how it works.
In addition, it would be great if you could send a screenshot of what you see on your screen while trying ?
Thanks for your cooperation 🙂
I’ll have a look at the thread, thanks.
I’ve attached a screenshot.
Sorry, just to add some extra info here - this seems to be a problem with my account as I’m able to access radio stations with another premium account.
thanks for the extra info !
Please follow the steps provided here and perform a clean reinstall of your app which is a bit different than the regular one.
Let me know how it goes 🙂
Well there’s been progress of a sort...
Tried three different artists - all with this result.
Forgot the screenshot
Also, I can play radio via the browser app. So there's something about the combination of the iOS app and my account that's all to pot.
thanks for bearing here with me !
As none of the above helped solving the issue, it might be connected to the ongoing issue mentioned here.

I have the exact same issue. I found a random track, clicked"play radio", and this message showed up.
Went to Google and it took me here. This is obviously a bug with Spotify.
Hi there @simplenoteasy,
Thank you for your reply and screenshots in this thread.
Can you confirm if you followed the steps that @OneByBoo provided?
Another useful step is to remove any hosts files.
If you're using Windows, these steps:
If you're using a Mac, follow these steps:
Keep us posted 🙂
I came here too because this problem occurred with one song. I tried a couple of times, then clicked the button to ‘remove from my library’, tried again, still didn’t work. But then I tried another song which worked fine, then went back to the first song and it worked now. So I guess it was a temporary glitch. I thought I should add this so people don’t do anything ‘drastic’ that may not be necessary.
I am also experiencing this issue on multiple songs and playlists. On my mobile it states that the playlists have been deleted and on the desktop app it loads for a while with the three dots then displays "Couldn't find that playlist" on multiple song radios and even playlist radios from my playlists that I know used to work.
I'm also having this exact same problem. I have tried all of the steps above, including the clean uninstall and nothing has worked.
Thank you for keeping us updated.
To investigate this further, would you mind checking if it happens using a different WiFi network or with a mobile data hotspot?
If so, include in your next response the Spotify version and OS version you're currently running on your devices.
We'll be on the lookout.
I still have this problem. Cannot make ANY RADIO STATION. Have reinstalled, tested wifi/data, everything. Please help!!!!
just started happening with ATB radio despite me being able to listen to it repeatedly for the last month; including this morning. So odd. Same 'playlist was deleted' message. Happening on google pixel 5
