I haven't used internet radio stations a lot especially since I lost my saved stations when My Radio stations pluging went away. Are you only allowed to save a station to favorites now? It would make much more sense to have a folder under Internet Radio and keep my picks there. I haven't tried yet but is it possible to make a folder in favorites for this task or do you just have to have a huge favorite folder with no organization? I wish they would have kept My Radio as it was a simple way to keep your stations together and was easy.

You can have folders and subfolders within favorites.

I'm not sure how much you use favorites, but they're pretty much useless for anything other than radio stations. Who wants to mark a favorite artist when all you can do with that favorite is play all of the artist's songs? You can't pull it up then browse into it to find an album or to pick out a few tracks.

I don't use SN or Internet Radio that much. But the two stations I do listen to I have saved as a Playlist. I name the Playlist with the name of the station. When I want the station, I scroll to Playlists, the station name and hit Play.

Would that work for what your trying to do?

Yes I think either would work. I just find it funny that you can't have your radio stations under Internet Radio Stations. Thanks for the responses. I'll probably try both and see what I like. I don't use them much but I should take advantage of radio stations that I stumble upon.
