  • Listened a bit off and on today. Beats 1 holds no appeal to me so far. Every song I heard was EXTREMELY explicit rap. Funny how Apple has made a big deal about maintaining certain standards in the App Store, but is streaming Apple-branded content that seems to hold a completely opposite attitude. ....I've been listening as I write this. Something pretty good on now (evening). I'll keep listening to get a sense of what's going on, but this afternoon was unbearable.
  • All the songs I listened to were censored... Apple has even publicly stated that they will keep songs edited on Beats 1.
  • Depends a lot on the DJ and time of day. You'll find they push music based on the most likely region thats listing ... As for 'every song I heard was explicit rap'.. um.. I only heard 2 rap songs that were in a row. I've kept it on since it started all day yesterday.. so you only listed to 2 songs? lol - nice sampling.
  • Strange, I did hear Pharrell Williams' Freedom. this is definitely a clean number. Sent from the iMore App
  • Although, music selection may change now that requests are coming. Sent from the iMore App
  • Why request a song on a radio station when you can listen to exactly what you want to when you want to with Apple Music. Unless you really want the entire world to hear something the DJ hasn't played. Sent from the iMore App
  • oh, I don't know... the concept of dedications perhaps? Oh, wait! Thats a social thing.. You may not understand... Social concepts might be difficult for you to understand and be new to you. Be careful when you come into the light, I hear that thing called a sun burns easily. :D
  • You can also send a voice recorded message from the iOS or Mac Messages app to "beats1radio@icloud.com". On iOS: press and hold the microphone icon to the right of the text entry box, swipe up when ready to send. I don't much think they will take texted iMessage requests, as they want to play the requester's voice on the air.
