Radio station keeps turning itself back on

Robert Thompson Mar 21, 2013 11:25AM PDT

It just turns out that the radio station feature is just not for me. I have disabled it in my queue, but it keeps turning back on, on a seemingly random, infrequent basis. It almost exclusively happens at the end of an album, and usually once every couple days.

iOS 6.1.3 (iPhone 4s), Android 4.2 (Nexus 7), Mac OS 10.8.2 (Mac Pro and a Macbook Air)

I switch between a variety of clients and devices, although the radio switch-on almost always happens on one of the Mac OS clients.

I have the feeling one of these clients is triggering the radio feature but I can't figure out how it happens and when. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for posting. Looking at your history I see a few artist stations (ex. M83 and Pretty Lights) of artists that are in your collection. Any chance you may have clicked on the "Play Station" button on the artist page?

Sometimes I click the wrong play button in search results - I didn't realize those actually started a station. That's probably what's happening, thanks!

Same question. I'm trying to listen to the new She & Him album in it's entirety but after one or two songs, it switches to the florence + the machine radio station I listed to last week. I've turned the station off on my queue page, on the florence page, etc. several times, Then I pull the She & Him album back up, check the queue to make sure those are the only songs in there and the radio station is off, but somehow it switches back on. Help!

Hi Sarah,

If the issue persists, can you take a screenshot of your queue and link to it in your reply?

This is happening to me as well. I keep turning the radio station off, but after playing 1 song of an album, the station is back on again. MAC OS Lion, Rdio 2.21
