For a long time I have wondered "what would become of a station that plays good music rather than just the top 100?" and Apple has accomplished this with Beats1. Rather than mindlessly replaying the same popular songs, there have been a lot of genuinely good songs played. This is exactly what unknown artists needed, and I have been taking note of every good song to revisit the artist. I believe a major part of Beats1 will be the time that it is listened to. When Zane Lowe is on you know to expect unknown mostly good-to-great music. Yet I seemed to begin listening at hip-hop hour before since a lot of really obscure hip-hop tracks were played that frankly were not that good. No genre is off-limits it seems. I also appreciate that they do do a top 20 global countdown to break up the music a bit. I'm ready to replace SiriusXM in my car with Beats1! Addicted already.
