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 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.

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.
