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.
There's CSR for you!
