Pandora allows you to stream music at up to 192kbps.

When you listen to a Pandora Internet radio station, the site uses an algorithm to find music similar to the artist or song that you initially used to create the station. To further customize the station, you can seed it with additional artists or songs and use the thumbs up/thumbs down system to change the types of music played. To reset a station to its original state, you must remove the preferences you've previously set for it.


Step 1

Your custom stations appear on the left column of the Pandora interface.

Select the Pandora radio station you wish to reset.
