    Are there any 80's radio stations? I find it hard to believe that there aren't any? Who doesn't love throwing on some 80's hits or some classic new wave music?

    The station called MixTape is the 80s radio station.

    well, that doesn't make sense since it plays music from 80's, 90's and 00's

    True, it plays some other decade stuff, but it seems to play about 75% stuff from the 80s.

    I agree. There are a lot of stations that I miss from iTunes Radio. They had several different Blues stations - Windy City, Today's Blues, etc. and now there is just the generic "blues". I also liked the Decades stations, which have also disappeared.

    This is not radio at all.

    I hate the b1 black square as default splash in radio section of new Music app. The station is bamboo-like rap/hip-hop only. I like Beastie Boys, but the bamboo-lobby on Apple Music and its Radio sucks.

    00's is not even considered music never mind being played on a so called 80's station.

    How can you say that, songs like "The day That you Grew Colder", In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree", 'Come Take A Trip in My Air-Ship" and "What You Going To Do When The De Rent Comes 'Round" are classics.

    I should have said the early 2000's were not bad but the music started to get bad. Any music after 2006 went downhill. Of course most users here are in there teen's or 20's so they like the crap from today.

    Not sure if these are of any help?

    I have these apps installed on my iPhone. The Absolute Radio app has different parts for 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, and rock too.

    Also, the TuneIn-Radio app will allow to search for radio stations by entering 80s into the search part.

    Goodness me. Yes in your opinion in went downhill. There is plenty of good music today, and there was plenty of good music in the 80s.

    Ohhh, the 2000's was not sure what 00's you meant. "What You Going To Do When The De Rent Comes 'Round" was a big hit in 1905

    Are you in your 20's? I bet you are. The music is horrible today period. When I call my phone company and hear the crap playing from today as hold music I feel like gouging my ears out.

    Last time I called my phone company I had to listen to "My Heart Will Go On" in a loop and I swear I'd rather listen to Dr Dre's latest magnum opus.
