    I just noticed today that all of the Weekly Top 50 stations on iTunes Radio have been removed ahead of the near release of Apple Music.

    They've also redesigned the look of the logos of some of the previous stations and have released some new stations such as Soundsystem, Mixtape, On the Floor, and All City.

    I hope the Weekly Top 50 Stations return after the release of Apple Music because I really enjoyed listening to them.

    if you had saved any station to your "my station" you will still have access to it

    That's what I thought but actually they're completely gone. I tried looking through their premade stations and even searching for the top 50's I generally listen to and they just don't exist anymore. I think they're just cleaning out the stations for new ones when Apple Music releases.

    Yeah, I had a lot of stations get deleted on me, too. As Kevsta26 says above, some previously saved stations just disappeared off all my devices.

    If you do a search now, all the the "Decades" style stations are gone. When I search for "iTunes Weekly Top 50" the only result I get now is the Dance genre. All the others (Pop, Country, R&B, etc.) are just plain gone.

    I have had luck re-adding them by doing Google searches of the genres and finding URL's for them.

    iTunes Weekly Top 50 - Pop
    iTunes Weekly Top 50 - Country

    Thank you for the Pop one! That was mostly the main one I listened to. Also, I did notice the Top 50 Dance station was still there, but strangely, when you go to it the station image is very blurry like Apple didn't fully delete it and there's just a blurry cached image or something like that.

    You can't force me to have better taste in music, Apple! I want my top 50 alternative station back!

    Peter,

    I would try searching with your station name or genre and appending "site:itunes.apple.com/us/station" to the search. Then click the "repeat the search with the omitted results included." link at the bottom of the search results page.

    https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=Indian+site:itunes.apple.com/us/station&filter=0

    Good luck, I still have been unable to locate any of the "Decades" stations...

    Not to mention I've started using Pandora because Apple doesn't seem to want me listening to the music stations I had saved beforehand without jumping through all these hoops.
