    Does Siri interface with iTunes radio?

    For example:

    ME - "Search iTunes Radio for..."

    SIRI - "I found... Would you like me to play this"?

    Nope. I tried a couple days ago to ask Siri to create a station, and it didn't work.

    But... If you ask it to search and play a specific song or album does it do it?

    I asked Siri to play Alice Cooper. It started playing Alice Cooper Radio which is one of my stations.

    Oh right, you can tell Siri to play anything that's already in your music app, including radio stations. You just can't ask it to create stations.

    Thanks But...

    I'm not too concerned about Siri creating stations - It would be useful to know it it will play songs that don't exist in my library or aren't contained within a station.

    Really? When I try to do something of the like with one of my stations (i.e., Pop Hits Radio) it returns with "I'm sorry, but I don't understand..."

    Edit: Just tried it again. It actually set up a station for me when I asked for something I didn't have already set.

    It probably works because I have Alice Cooper radio as one of my stations.
