android radio app that you can make a mix genre station?

i already know about apps that you can make stations with all similar music, but are there any that allow you to mix genres? say i would like to make a station that not only plays motown but also plays 70's soft rock and maybe some 80's hits. is there any way to do this?

even an app that you can put custom stations on random (play a song from one station and then a song from another) would work, though not as ideal.

Re: android radio app that you can make a mix genre station?

I get what you're asking for, but I don't know of an application that does it.

As a more extreme example, I'd like something that will mix some 1500's Renaissance with 90's Hip Hop, randomly choosing the tracks as the app sees fit. If any service has the capacity to create such a playlist, it would be Spotify, but you'd actually have to code it into a custom Spotify App yourself, or just hope that someone creates one. For a programmer, it should be extremely easy, using Spotify's API... but I don't know anything about that stuff.

With Pandora you get the stations you like (Dubstep Radio , 80s Alternative, etc.) then Shuffle the station.

It's "Shuffle" online, looks like it's "QuickMix" with the iOS app.

I thought with Pandora, you just click the "add variety" button, and then add an example of a band from a different genre .. .then keep doing that for all the genres you want on one station.

Re: android radio app that you can make a mix genre station?

so far it works good...i just wish it would randomise genres more. it seems to lump them into 4 or 5 songs in a row then switch to a dif genre. oh well it works good enough for being free.
