Spotify Added Classical Radio

 ...or rather, easy listening and soundtracks radio.

Spotify tweaked its Radio feature in the last update, removed options for "50s and earlier", (what if I only want to hear 40s bebop or 50s cool jazz on the radio?) generously gave three stations to black metal, heavy metal and death metal, (looking forward to hair metal and undead metal in the next update!) add, finally, added classical radio.


But it doesn't work. I flipped through dozens of tracks but didn't see any Mozart, Bach or Beethoven. The program was filled with Hans Zimmer, John "Jaws, not the guitar player" Williams, and Ludovico Einaudi. It's great to have a soundtrack and easy listening radio if that's what you were hoping for, and I hope Spotify can work with the classical labels to better present the real classical treasures in their catalog soon.

Want a Mozart FM on Spotify now? See my previous post: Classical Radio and Games On Spotify.

Update: More new features: playlist sharing, optimized artist page

  1. The Radio feature doesn't appear to be available in the US. Is there something I'm missing?

  2. Radio is currently unavailable in Spotify USA:

    The music industry logic: "you can play any song you want, but we don't want to give you the license to play random radio"...

  3. Thanks for the response. I'm sure Spotify's attorneys are a busy lot... I consider it a small miracle that the service exists at all.

  5. The 60's, 70's and 80's buttons no longer modify the genre choice, rather they are themselves 'genre' choices now, so if you click 'jazz' and '60's' you'll get many kinds of music from the 60's and jazz from all eras. Utterly useless, they've ruined the radio for me.

  8. No matter what type of Michael Kors Bags Outlet each individual got, they all had one thing in common. We all know that getting something on sale is like winning a mini lottery, but to find a name brand handbag like Michael Kors Black Friday Sale for instance, discounted is like a slice of heaven on earth. I have personally attacked my husband with hugs and kisses when finding Official Coach Outlet Online at discounted prices.

    Michael Kors Factory Outlet stores can be found in malls all over. MK Outlet and other Coach merchandise can also be found in some boutiques. Inspired by the same material baseball gloves are made from, these Coach Bags On Sale Online are versatile and stylish. Since it's conception, the Michael Kors Handbags Outlet has been produced into a variety of designs, colors, shapes, and styles that have won top pick of millions of women the world over.

    New Michael Kors Bags are the most sought after handbag. Since Coach Outlet Online is one of the most recognized name brands in the world of fashion, you will find A-list celebrities down to small girls wearing them.
