Anyone else having trouble with iTunes Radio stopping after a song has played, instead of continuing on to the next in line? I noticed this today on my bike ride. No matter what radio channel I tuned to, I got the same results.

BasicGreatGuy, iTunes Radio is...going away for awhile. It isn't dying, it's just becoming someone different. This is a big change for iTunes Radio so it's going to take some time, and some things are going to be awkward, but it won't last forever. If I had to guess, I would say iTunes Radio is in a state of purgatory. That's why it's misbehaving.

I'm not an internet service director but if I were a betting man, I would say it'll all be over next Tuesday, June 30th. Until then, I'm afraid you're stuck with what Beta God has given you. I'm sorry. It will get easier, and when it's all over, iTunes Radio will be much better for it.

Thanks for the reply, Devin.

Given the new changes coming, (in addition to the beta) what you said makes sense. For now, I will load some of my own songs on the iPhone, so that I don't have to hit the play button for every song. It was messing up my workout tempo.

Had the same thing happen last night (would play for one song, and then stop). Even had iTunes Radio start messing up on my 10.10 work computer yesterday. I agree they're probably just preparing for the 30th, because a lot about it is changing...
