Apple Redubs Beats 1 as Apple Music 1, Adds New Stations

  1. They should add Jazz and Classical stations IMO, as they are just as big genres in their own right as Country is.

    Jazz & Classical are very international. Country does have an international following, but is still largely a US-centric audience.
