How do I create my own iTunes radio station from scratch?

I have been clicking the + sign to create a station but all this does is let you select stations that already exist based on your song or artist choice.

Can I not create my own station with the artists I choose?

i.e. start with a blank station and keep adding artists/songs I like to the station AND then add custom station artwork and title?

p.s. I thought this service was going to be called iRadio. It seems to still be iTunes Radio.

Yes that is how you FIND a station you like. But I want to create my own station from a blank station using my own cover art and title like I see on iTunes Radio. I don't know how these people are creating their own station titles.

p.s. iTunes Radio is frikkin' great.

Found one thing I wanted but it's still not the same as creating my own station from a blank page.

Quote:
You can't change the names of the Featured Stations; these are the ones at the top of the iTunes Radio window that are programmed by Apple. But you can change the names of any stations that you created. If you create a station from a song with a long name, such as "Half-Step Mississippi Uptown Toodeloo," you might want to shorten that name. To do this, click the radio station's icon in the iTunes window to expand the view. Click the name, and you'll see that it becomes highlighted. Type the name you want, and press Return. The new name will propagate to all your devices that are linked to your iTunes Store account.
Btw, you can FaceBook stations but how do you Facebook songs?

Sharing a station on FB is simple but sharing a song on FB took some exploring.

This is how you do it in 3 stages. But note how the FB share post doesn't say iTunes Radio. It just says iTunes store. I get it but would prefer it to be more of a communal share rather than purchase link. Oh well.
