Hello Bill. I just wanted to say how much we have been enjoying RP since we discovered it by chance some time last year. You have been playing a great selection of music. I would say however that for all the great selections, and I totally get your selection criteria, there are a lot of tracks out there that would be great to hear in your mix that are currently missing. It’s also always a pleasure to hear so much music that you simply wouldn’t hear on main stream radio. However just in the last two weeks we have noticed a big change to the music you are playing and a lot of the time just now it’s a bit disappointing. Just a passing comment, not a criticism.

The rock mix expansion is due next week. On the main mix, most songs are played no more than 2 or 3 times per month. 

I suggest you hang with the main mix for a while & see if you don't find that to be true.

Oh, hey! I think you may have a lot of it covered.... Another week or two and I'll whinny off into the sunset seeking my siren. Or, is that muse?

Maybe the mix can go through a wedgie and twisty shake up.

Does the legacy site kill incomplete posts also?

On Old Site: Test, test. I didn't think so. Boy! Easy to get lost, too. 

Anyway, was rattling on about discovering the various mixes and that pigeon-holing music into genres per the mixes can make the music sound the same, even if it is.

Oh, Scott, I am old. Acronyms aren't my thing.

PS. God!! Get those birds and bugs out of my ears.... Where am I on RP? Groovy Mix, per Bill.

I listen to radioparadise nearly every day. I get the same song list every day on the main mix. I get the same song list every day on the rock list. And I get the same songs list every day on the mellow mix. What gives? Why am I hearing the same songs every day? 
 

That's not normal. The rock mix is due for a major expansion. It's currently a bit repetitive. On the main mix, though, you shouldn't hear the same sets of songs more than once every couple of months (assuming you listen all day every day). On the mellow mix you should be able to listen for at least a month or so without hearing repeated sets of songs.

So, something isn't right. What app are you using? Are you using the cache feature? Are you logged in?
