In my experience with Spotify radio, I've found it really useful for two functions, to find new music similar to the radio I pick, and to listen to music I know similar to the radio I pick. A slider or something along that line that allows you to choose the ratio of familiar: unfamiliar music would be an incredible tool to have. It would put the user in much greater control over the recommendation algorithm
Your Idea has been submitted a while ago, and unfortunately hasn't gathered enough votes (50 votes within 3 months) to keep it active in the Exchange. Be sure to know that this does not mean that your Idea has been declined by Spotify.
Don't worry, your Idea will still be able to gain more votes, and may get a Live Idea status if it receives enough of them.
