– How to Remove a Station From Pandora –
Stations track your tastes as you give thumbs up and down, tailoring the station to fit the aesthetic you want.
Deleting a station not only removes the station from your list but also permanently erases the history of songs you’ve rated while listening to that station.
You can create up to 100 unique, customized stations using Pandora’s music service. While this enables you to listen to virtually every type of music you want, it could also be overwhelming.
Learning how to remove stations from Pandora gives you more control over your personal music.
How to Remove Stations From Pandora Online

In some accounts, this will be called My Stations or My Music instead.
Point to the first station you want to delete, but do not select it. A Play arrow and a More button appear on the album cover displayed.
Select the More option, which looks like an ellipsis (…). A menu appears.

What to Do if Station Reappears Online
If you deleted a station but it keeps showing up when you access Pandora on the web, check the bookmark you use to access the site. If anything besides https://www.pandora.com appears, remove it and update the bookmark. Reload the page; the station you deleted should be gone.
How to Recreate a Station You Deleted
You can bring back a station you deleted by creating a new station from the same song or artist you originally used to make the station. This will bring back the exact station you first created, including any thumb ratings you added.
However, If you were not happy with the station you originally created and want to start fresh with a new one, create a new station with a different song by the same artist.
Easy Steps to Create, Edit, and Delete Stations
1. Create a Station on the Web
- In the search tool at the top of your screen enter an artist, song, composer or genre.
- Click the search result (it may help to filter your results by Station) to go to its “backstage page.”
- Click either Start Station to add the station to your collection.
If you’d rather listen to something right away, you can search for a song or album and press play. If you’re not a Premium subscriber, you’ll be asked to watch a short video advertisement before you listen on-demand.
You can also use the Browse tab to see station recommendations.
2. Add variety, Edit and Delete Stations
To Edit your Stations on the Web
- Go to My Collection. (Pandora Premium account holders may want to filter their collection by Stations for an easier view.)
- Click on the title of the station you’d like to edit to go to its “backstage page.”
- Click the ellipsis to the right of the play button to reveal an additional menu, and select Edit Station.
- To add or remove variety (station seeds): Scroll down to the Station Created From section.
To add variety, click + Add Variety, enter the artist or track you’d like to add, then click on the (+) sign to add that artist or song to your station. To remove variety, hover over the desired seed and select Delete. Note: you cannot add variety to Genre Stations.
- To view your thumbed tracks: Scroll down to the Thumb History section of the station’s page. By default, this section will show your Thumbed-Up tracks first. If you’d like to see your Thumbs Down, click on the Thumbs Down icon.
- To delete a Thumbed track: Roll your cursor over the name of the track to reveal a hidden menu (or click the ellipsis if you are a Pandora Premium subscriber). As before, select Delete to remove that thumb from your station.
To Delete Stations on the Web
- Click My Collection.
- Hover over the album art of the station you want to delete.
- Click the ellipsis (three dots), then select Remove from your collection.
Note: You cannot edit or delete individual stations while in Now Playing or Shuffle mode.
Stop Deleted Stations from Returning
If you have deleted a station from your computer and it seems to keep returning:
- You may need to check the bookmark that you use to access Pandora.
- It should only be: https://www.pandora.com. If there is anything added onto to it (e.g., https://www.pandora.com/genre/new-pop), then erase that.
- After updating your bookmark, try loading Pandora again to confirm that your deleted station is gone.
If you’re Trying to Recreate a Station you Deleted
To recreate a deleted station, simply create a new station from the same song or artist you’d originally used. That will bring your deleted station back with all of its thumb ratings intact.
If you want to create a “fresh” version of a station that you’ve already deleted, you can try either of the following:
Try creating a new station based on a few of your favorite songs from that artist.
If you were unhappy with the way your artist-based station turned out, creating a station based on some of that artist’s songs is a great way to give it another try.
Remember that you can always edit your station (using the steps above) to increase the variety of your current station.
