CUPERTINO, CA (Hypebot) – I'm fond of referring to Apple Music's live online radio station Beats1 as Jimmy Iovine's wet dream. After all, what music exec wouldn't want to have such influence over a globally influential radio station? "You know Zane, Apple Music just cut a deal for an exclusive new Chris Brown track. Yeah, I know it sucks, but…".
Developers and beta testers of Apple's updated operating systems can listen to a promotional clip for Apple Music's much ballyhooed Beats1 live net radio station. Zane Lowe, Ebro Darden, and Julie Adenuga each take a turn.
Included is an announcement that the official launch time to be 9AM Pacific on June 30.
