How to create a personalized radio station in Apple Music with Siri

You're scrolling through Apple Music looking for something to listen to and nothing is grabbing your attention. You've already checked out Apple's weekly curated mixes in the For You tab and you're being picky. Don't you just wish there was a radio station that only plays music you liked? Ask Siri and ye shall receive!

How it works

Just like other Apple Music radio stations, your personalized one that Siri creates will play music non stop as long as you keep it running. You need an Apple Music subscription to take advantage of this cool feature, and as of right now, it seems to only functions through Siri.

In my experimentation with it, the personalized radio station uses your history, loved songs, and frequently listening to tracks to curate the content, so you likely won't come across any new songs or artists this way.

It's pretty awesome to have a randomized list of bangers that you know like on stand by for those times you don't know what to listen to; here's how do it!
