Download smart DJ playlist songs locally on wp8

After wasting too many weeks trying to come up with a decent sync solution between my Win 8 PC and WP8 with no luck....  I thought I would just try to use the WP8 as a stand alone and  not worry about keeping the PC and WP8 synched.  My favorite feature of the Zune software (PC) was the smart DJ playlist feature.  If you liked the list all you had to do was "check" save as playlist and the software would save it, download all of the files in the list and sync it with your Zune player automatically for offline use.  While WP8 has the smart DJ feature, I can't find a way to download the files locally to my phone's SD card.  I can only stream the playlist unless I painstakingly go into the store, find every song in the list and download it individually!  Why is MS trying their hardest to keep us from downloading content.  I can stream mixes for free.  I have an XBOX music pass so that I can listen to anything without an internet connection.  They have totally destroyed the Zune pass experience!

What a lame response!

I wish I had found this post prior to purchasing my WP8.  MS obviously had everything figured out with the Zune software for saving smart dj playlist and downloading the songs.  I wonder who's greed led to this change.
