    Does anyone know the source of the songs in the red, 'Heard', channel shown in this picture?

    Are you asking how the songs in this channel are curated ? If so, it is apparently based on Amber Heard's song preferences. She is Elon's ex girlfiend

    It's a trivial question but I was hoping for a real answer.

    You got one - there has been conjecture that the answer you got is correct.

    I did a google search and found these articles that discuss the channel and floats the idea it’s related to her (also backed by cryptic tweets by Elon Musk) so I believe he gave you a serious answer:

    Elon Musk talks Tesla UI: media, voice commands, and navigation

    Tesla to launch its own music streaming service, in talks with labels

    Furthermore the direct link to the station includes info from Slacker making it clear the station is curated somehow by Tesla:

    That’s too funny! We actually listen to this station quite often and always wondered where the name came from. Seems like a reasonabke enough explanation or at least makes for a good urban legend.

    Does the channel just automatically appear or did you select it in Slacker?
