Problems Problems: My Android Internet Radio Part II

As reported previously, Google Play seems to think my Sungale Internet Radio is a game machine. And, it has been busily downloading unneeded and unwanted games to my radio. Well, it seems it (Google Play) has outdone itself. I began seeing notifications that Unfortunately has stopped. So far, so good. I am no longer having my radio programs being interrupted by the latest (did I mention unwanted?) game starting up.

Then the notification Unfortunately Google Play Services has stopped. appeared. Not so good. Apparently Google Play used up all the available memory and had insufficient elbow room to operate. The solution was to go to Settings/apps and uninstall one of the unneeded and unwanted games. Voila! My radio will play uninterrupted.

I expect new games will once again be downloaded and the cycle will repeat. What I don't understand is why Google allows this situation to exist.
