      1. That type of request could be gamed by one of our pet trolls with a kiddie script. But with a live telephone call, the sniggering pre-pubescent voice would be a dead giveaway.

    1. Exactly! Or if you so desperately want to listen to the track you’re already listening to… but on Beats 1 instead of Apple Music’s catalog… first have your brain checked by a doctor that specializes in dumb @sses or add a feature directly on the app… Share It With The World: Send Automatic Request for Beats 1… and *poof*… all digital, all native and Zane Lowe could say something like ‘This request is from Johnny in Timbuktu!’… Call? Hahahahaha! Oh… Apple’s stupor post Steve Jobs is dumbfounding.

      1. Actually, the “Share” feature is already there. Just click the button with three dots next to song. Of Apple wants a more automated “request song for Beats 1,” it can there as an option, along with a FaceBook and Twitter.

        I think the whole point of Beats 1 is to be more “retro” about the music experience. It IS an old-school human-hosted radio station, but the broadcast range is global, not local. I was never into music on the radio with a “DJ,” so I don’t see that much appeal in it personally. But i know that requesting a song to play on the radio is an “ego” thing. Hey(!), I just impacted what others are listening to… So, it’s part of that experience to speak on a phone to make it happen. If it’s an “automated” process that takes two mouse clicks or taps on the screen, EVERYONE will do it, and the act because valueless and meaningless.

  1. Some of the stuff from Beats was ok yesterday, but I just listened to some more recently and discovered there is too much candy on the sugar pop. Then this song came to mind:

    And here is a couple of new ones for the believers. Happy Birthday America!

  2. Apple Music and Beats whatever is destined to be a huge flop.

    Apple will drop the price to near zero, and then shut it down.

    Money loser written all over it.

    1. LOL,

      beats 1 is in 100 countries, it’s free, it’s good highest class DJs so millions are going to listen..

      every few minutes the DJ says “this is Beats 1 from Apple Music”….

      “Apple” “Apple” “Apple ”

      I was in advertising, do you know how much this station is worth in Ad dollars? a 24 hr Apple Ad channel in 100+ countries!!! listened by millions!! Compare A SINGLE TV ad costs thousands per minute! .
      When people FEEL GOOD as they do listening to the mostly upbeat music they subconsciously link it to Apple… (genius!!. it’s like all these celeb musicians advertising for Apple!)

      Just for what they are getting in equivalent ad bucks they’ve made (or saved) millions already in ONE DAY from Beats 1.

      1. So far i have not heard anything good its all groups i have never heard of and music that hurts my ears.
        Although i did find the crooners station on my iPhone playing some ol blue eyes was pretty good.
        was hoping for something like sirius with beats1 with a good mix of music but my word its horrible stuff.

        I did call up and request some 80s stuff though hoping they would play it

    2. I like Apple Music. Beats 1 is just a “station” in the Radio part of Apple Music. Not a big deal whether it’s popular or a “huge flop.” But Apple Music will be successful.

      1. If AppleMusic doesn’t get 100 million paid subscribers by early next year, it will certainly be considered a flop. There will be hundreds of articles saying how 80 million subscribers was way below Apple’s target number of 100 million.

        I’m rather certain Wall Street has already determined AppleMusic becoming a flop because it won’t generate enough revenue for Apple unless they have a billion paid subscribers. It’s said that Apple keeps making the wrong choices to gain additional revenue.

        1. it’s of course a fact that Apple makes all the wrong moves to gain additional revenue, one failure after another, it’s almost nonstop.

          see, that is why they are worth so much—it’s all the revenue they’re constantly missing out on.

    3. There’s something magical, especially for Apple fanatics, to listen to a radio station “produced by Apple”. We all know that Apple has just thrown money at professionals, but with the Apple label on it, it still has that “wow” factor when you actually listen to it. There’s a different feel to live broadcasts compared to “canned” on-demand music. Kind of like going to the movies is more fun than ordering a movie at the home television. There’s room for both in the world, and Apple knows that this is an investment to boost their music prowess. And it’s working.

    4. A commercial product, like this radio station, Is not “destined” for any outcome, despite everyone thinking in terms of futuristic predictions based on our limited, personal world views. The product will stand or fail on its rate of adoption by a large, diverse target market, regardless of what we and our friends think of that market. Most often, we do not understand the market’s composition—only that we do not consider ourselves part of it and cannot comprehend the number of imbeciles that must exist for it to become true.

      In short people want something tailored to their impeccable tastes, not to the degenerate appetites of the lower elements. FAIL.

    5. But anonymous coward ‘Gary’. What is it you want? You’re not going to get credit for being right, if you’re right. You’re an anonymous coward! And if you’re wrong, just another loser troll under the tread marks. So you post your FUD for what reason exactly?

      Oh I forgot: So people can HATE on you, just as you HATE on them. Anonymous S&M in public. 😛

      1. How is he anonymous? Unless you know for sure that this name is not Gary.

        I don’t think it makes any of us any less anonymous that we took 30 seconds to register with WordPress. It isn’t like WordPress is asking for our SSN, credit card, home address, birth certificate or similar…

        1. You should know that “Anonymous Coward” is a default username at a number of websites, although not this one. Derek uses it as a colourful synonym for any unregistered user, particularly a sketchy one.

          If you register with WordPress you have more legitimacy than someone who chooses any username he pleases, even one otherwise registered to WordPress, when commenting. A registered user builds a reputation. An imposter seeks to shatter it. That’s happened to Derek and others, and I’m grateful it hasn’t yet happened to you.

  3. I know this sounds bit crazy – but why phone to have your track on Beats radio?

    Why can’t you send a message via Siri or text via your Apple Watch/device to the Beats radio channel?

    Apple is a technology business after all…

    1. As I just mentioned to LordRobin—

      That type of request could be gamed by one of our pet trolls with a kiddie script. But with a live telephone call, the sniggering pre-pubescent voice would be a dead giveaway.

      1. Besides…

        There are at least two generations of people who grew up without radio; whose primary audio format for music was MP3.

        Calling into a radio station to request a song to be played is a very retro, and a completely foreign concept to these generations. For them, this is more than likely very cool.

        1. Interesting thought. Hearing your name on the radio is a pick-me-up. Takes me back…once, estranged in Chicago, my spirit down, I called in a request from a pay phone to an oldies station that I could pick up on my shabby transistor radio. The song was “Mechanical World.” The truly sad thing was that even back then, I felt the need to give the deejay a fake name.
