    Really glad I updated my iTunes to 12.2.1, with all those bug fixes. Oops, all my radio stations curated for months are gone.
    Sweet... Can't wait to subscribe, what could possibly go wrong.

    If you backed up your music library, you can always downdate the App to a version that does the stuff you want a music app to do, such as play your carefully curated radio stations.

    How do I "downdate" the app? I backup everyday and was fortunate to halt it before it backed up 12.2.1 over 12.2.
    But system will not let me move 12.2 from my backup to my system drive, nor let me delete 12.2.1.

    I've just gotten done downdating iTunes to 10.4.1 on a bunch of Macs.
    For starters, you need to boot off another partition so as to delete iTunes 12.2.
    After that, things get a little complicated, especially if you want to maintain playcount, ratings and such.
    I'm putting together a post as to how I did it for this thread: iTunes 12.2.
    The same methods should work for merely going back to 12.1, or to some version of 11, or a later version of 10.
    Oh yes, if you have Time machine going back to an earlier version of the app and the library, that's likely the easiest route to take.
