New to Pandora ...

Why is it when I make a Station I'd like to hear from a particular artist.
Say Led Zepplin, for example, it will play a Zepplin song and the next song will be from a different artist, I would have thought that it would play Zepplin till I changed it.

I noticed the same thing too.

or you type in a song name and it gives you something else by a totally different artist

Not exactly. When you type in an artist it will start out with that artist then play other artists in the same genre. Creating a station as it goes along. After so long it will get around to playing other songs from your chosen artist.

When typing a song name it is creating a station based on a title not an artist, so it may play the song you typed first or another song in the same genre.

I hope this helps. I was typing and watching the end of the Sun Bowl. :)

Ok, so theres no filters or anything like that where you can set it to play only what you want ?

no..its part of their "license" same thing with Slacker..The record companies won't allow "x" amount of songs from the same artist or album in the same hour.You can also only skip approx 5 songs in an hour too.now if you subscribe to the "premium" version the rules might be different

You can give songs on your station "thumbs down" and they won't play again. Give the ones you like the "thumbs up." Pandora is very intuitive, the more info you give it, the more it is customized to your tastes.

Has anyone figured out how to give a thumbs up/down when screen has gone to screensaver mode?
