Why does library radio keep repeating the same 30 songs every day or two??!!!!

 
  • Why does library radio keep repeating the same 30 songs every day or two??!!!!

    It's driving me crazy, apart from the fact that last.fm really slows down my computer and often freezes, why is it the same 30 songs in my library radio keep repeating every day or two when I have over 100 artists in my library?? If I can't figure it out, I may as well stop using it. Anyone else had the same problem? How much computer memory power does last.fm use? It must require a heck of a lot of processing power.

    because you have such a small amount of plays for it to work off. listen to lots of music and it will get better.

    also if the site slows down your computer, your computer is bad.

    I don't understand what you mean? I have 100+ artists in my library and some of those 30 tracks it repeatedly plays every day have been played 3 times already.

    Like I said, you have a tiny amount of PLAYS for the system to work from. Not every song for every artist you have added will be on the site. Keep listening. Make some radios that interest you and listen to those. Listen locally etc etc etc.

    I had a similar problem when listening to the post-rock radio. (And I have 123781 plays )

  • I'd appreciate if someone else could explain in an intelligible way why it repeats the same songs so often (when I have 100+ artists in my library) and how I can get this website to play different tracks from most of these 100+ artists in My Radio Library. Thank you.

    by listening to more and more music...
    someone else will tell you the same, but go ahead and attempt to insult me.

    You joined only six days ago and have a majority of 0 plays
    in the list of library additions in your profile. When I joined
    back in 2008 I got hardly any music streamed from last.fm
    because my library was too small.

    The idea is to build a music profile of your tastes e.g.
    start scrobbling from your PC some albums of the
    artists you have. Last.fm although has a vast library
    of streamable tracks does not have absolutely every
    single piece of music. Sometimes by playing similar
    artists radios and genre radios of your chosen artists
    may open up other tracks. However last.fm from my
    own knowledge is not a request radio and can only
    play what it has available.

    There are other ways you may be able to get tracks
    that you have not heard from your chosen artists and
    they are to either use http://www.combofm.de/login/
    just add your username and use the various radio
    options; the other is to use google chrome and add
    the Chrome free last.fm music player

    I think the lastfm algorithm thingy was designed with youngsters in mind. It plays tracks it thinks you like over and over till you delete/ban the track & move on to the next 'in' track.
    Try mugshot tim's suggestion of www.combofm.de/login -maybe try one of your neighbours, plus your own library below but change the little dropdown to 'not'.

    Also go to an artist page and 'love' a few specific tracks.*
    But... (1)don't expect results for days or weeks (it seems a very soft & slow tool)
    (2) UNlove the track after it plays

    *if it has
    the play icon
