    You should try it, it's a pretty nice feature. It hasn't completely replaced my other music streaming services but it is certainly a good option to have.

    It picks songs from the entire iTunes catalog based on the station "seed" whether that is a specific song, artist, or genre and then fine tunes it's picks based on the other songs or artists or genres you add to the station. It does not need to be music you have in your personal iTunes library on the device.
