Do you use iTunes radio?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
I'm really pleased with some of these stations!

I've been listening to KCRW:music , KCRW simulcast , (modern jazz) the most, but I've also been checking out the Urban and electronic channels.

there are some good channels here, I don't have a car in boston, and I don't have a radio in my room, so this is really nice to get clear static free radio!

good stuff

What stations do you listen to? where can one get more?

    I don't have much use for the pre-programmed stations, although I sometimes check out WFMU because of the variety there. You can't add to the list of stations in the radio section, but you can use iTunes to listen to streaming content from probably hundreds of radio stations if you know the address.

    Personally I am a huge fan of WOXY. I like the selection of music, and am hoping it does not decline once their over-the-air broadcast ends.

    I also liked KCRW and Secret Agent, they have fun music.

    I am disappointed that I can't add stations to the radio tab, but it isn't a big problem. I sometimes like to listen to local college radio, so sometimes I tune in WMBC, since WJHU/WHSR stopped broadcasting.

    I'm a big fan of "Dub Beautiful Collective" in the Ambient section. It's great as background music/sound while working on other things or even taking a nap!

    Sometimes I listen to it when I can't find anything in my music library. Mostly I listen to the jazz stations just for a change.

    I used to use that but I got tired of the small selections.

    I use SHOUTCAST now and can find everything I like..

    I love Chronix under Hard Rock/Metal! I've been listening to them almost everyday for the past 15months (that's when I got my first Mac -iBook G3 800).

    I listen to some oldies stations (Crazy's Al's Radio Party) in the 50's and 60's section. Also, lots of Irish/Celtic stuff in Americana, and some rockabilly.

    And occasionally, just for enormous giggles, I'll tune in to ieAmerica (left-leaning talk radio) in the Talk section, just to remind myself how NOT to view the world.

    "All-Bush-bashing, all-the-time...24/7...Conspiracy! Lies! Rumsfeld looks mean! Halliburton! Clear Channel! WMD! BOO! Nation-building! Drugs! Hallib...oops, already said it! FCC! Air National Guard! Mel Gibson! Guns! NRA! Enron. Enron and Halliburton. The Passion of the Christ and no WMDs! Rush flashed his tit while watching the Super Bowl! Matt Drudge! Ashcroft is laid up...hahaha! But first, a word from our sponsor..."

    You know I never even thought about it until reading this thread yesterday, I had been on dialup so long I never bothered, but with adsl at home now I gave it a go and knocked over a few hours on (thru itunes) last night
