Wrote to Pandora asking them why they're still hosting "Gary Glitter Radio" and writing him royalty checks.
Thanks very much for writing. I definitely understand your concern. As far as our collection goes, we carry any artist that is relevant and has a significant fanbase. We're interested in offering music and comedy that listeners will want to hear, regardless of genre, historical context, or other classification. That said, we are sensitive to individual taste, so we do offer you the ability to remove any track that you don't like from your stations.
If you give consistent Thumbs-down to an artist on a given station, Pandora should learn to stop playing that artist on that station.
Of course, if you have added this artist or one of their songs as a seed on that station, or ever Thumbed them up on that station, you would have to remove these seeds or Thumbs first.
Thanks again for your feedback and for listening!

So Pandora employees will continue to derive a percentage of their pay check directly from the sale of songs that benefit a man who raped a 12 year old girl.
Credited to British artist, Norman Wilkinson (1878-1971) the concept of 'Razzle Dazzle' camouflage 'Is essential to break up the regularity of outline and this can be easily effected by strongly contrasting shades…a giraffe or zebra or jaguar looks extraordinarily conspicuous in a museum but in nature, especially when moving is wonderfully difficult to pick up.'
When a German submarine spotted one of these flamboyant warships in their primitive rangefinders, it became extremely difficult to judge the speed and heading of the vessel’s course. This made it nearly impossible to accurately make a successful torpedo hit.
Razzle Dazzle was applied to over 2,000 warships and 4,000 British merchant ships in both the World Wars.
And it’s still used today on car prototypes to prevent competitors getting a clear view of a new car’s lines.
I was recently introduced to the stunning street photography of Saul Leiter (talent I should have known!) His work captures a bygone erea of New York with a abstraction that looks fresh even today; truly, he paints with a lens.
And as many images as I've posted here, you're just left wanting to see more...
