    The short time I have been on here I have learned alot thanks to everyone's replies.
    Now down to business, When you play Pandora and select an artist should all the songs played be by that artist? I selected one and the first song is by the artist but the rest are by various artists. That's not what I want, am I doing something wrong here? Need some help again please.... I want to just hear the artists I select if possible.

    I think it goes by genre even though you put in an certain artist's name. Just "thumbs down" it.

    I am pretty sure that is not what it does, at least not for me I have never tried to set it that way though. It takes an Artist puts it in a genre and then plays back more just like it. You can also access your Pandora account online and there are more settings there. I am sure some people would be interested if you find out it can be done

    Basically it plays music that is "similar" to the artist you put in. give the artist you like a thumbs up, and more of that artist should play.

    There's actually laws governing this. Pandora is basically a radio station and is subject to FCC guidelines and laws. The FCC does not allow a radio station to play the same artist more than 4 times in a row.

    Plus, the way Pandora stays free is that they promise artists exposure by getting artists on front of audiences that may appreciate them based on similar artist interest. So, labels will allow them to steam their music free with the hope that exposure will equal sales.

    I may be wrong on the whole FCC thing.... I think I read it somewhere and may have some details wrong. Please someone correct me if they know more about this
