[nabs-l] Apple Music Question

Hi all,

I apologize that this is not exactly typical conversation material for
this list, but since I use Apple Music for academic purposes as well
as for pleasure I'm hoping someone might be able to answer my
question.

 Sometimes when I create playlists in apple music, they'll be good for
a while but then randomly all the songs in the playlist will
disappear.  I use playlists regularly when putting together recorded
song material for my music therapy practicum sessions, so I'm scared
of this eventually happening when I need to have the playlist there
for a session.  It has not happened at a crucial time like that yet,
but I never want to end up in that situation if I can help it.

I did try to look online on my own first but was not having much luck
finding answers.  Additionally, this link seemed to be helpful but for
some reason neither IE nor Firefox was able to load it.

Is there something I should be doing to make the playlist retain the
songs I put on it, or do they just disappear after a certain point?
My initial impression of the playlists was that they'd be there for as
long as I had the playlist, and that capability was part of what I am
paying for.  Since I use several recorded songs a week and would
otherwise need to download them all Apple Music with the student
discount actually ends up saving me money, but not having reliable
playlists is a huge risk in what I'm trying to use the service for.
Any feedback on this would be great.
