ITunes Radio completely ignoring likes and dislikes?

    It appears that my custom iTunes Radio stations are almost completely ignoring the bands I have selected as like and never-play. The stations are sort of playing the right genre (sort of) but no matter how I remove bands, add bands, block bands - it is playing the same dozen or so songs from what seems to be some stuff Apple is trying to push (like Imagine Dragons) rather than any of the bands I have picked!

    Is anyone having GOOD experiences with it? Is it perhaps a problem with a certain percentage of accounts or stations?

    how long are you waiting?

    with pandora i've read it would take two days for your likes/dislikes to be reflected on your stations

    I listen for no more than 15-20 min at a time, but it seems to be doing as well as pandora in terms of likes/dislikes and serving up the type of music I want on each station.

    The only thing I don't like is that when you search for a song/artist to use to start a station or add to an existing one, it only gives like 5 search results. So if I'm looking for some obscure song or artists often I can't find them.

    Hit Edit on the radio tab and select your station. You will see more options.

    I'm surprised there's not a dedicated thread (place to complain) for iRadio. I listen to the iTunes Alternative Top 100 all day and they're definitely not playing 100 unique songs on there.
