The new Apple Music is heavily emphasizing Beats1 radio as well as pre-defined "stations." However, it seems that the old Pandora-like capabilities of creating and fine-tuning a station by asking to "play more like this" and "don't play this again" are still present, just... buried. All of my old stations can be found by browsing the "recently played," and new stations can be created by selecting the "..." symbol from songs and choosing the option to make a new station based off of the artist or song.

But that's it. It seems like the main channel list is gone. It's also now impossible to access the "hits/variety" slider, to see the main list of "play more like this" and "don't play again," and to see the list of songs that played under that station. Has this functionality been completely removed, or am I just missing it?

Came here curious about this as well. Looks like those options are gone on both iOS and Mac, just to confirm. Rather disappointing that this would be gone in the midst of all the other additions and customizations...

Radio, so far, seems like an after thought. They begrudgingly kept it around to win over some other online radio subs.

In CarPlay I only have access to the recently played. It's silly that I can't browse the other stations. I liked having a stations list of presets.

Unlimited slipping is nice but expensive when compared to other services.

Oops. I created a thread just know because I'm confused about iTunes Radio vs "Radio" now.
