How To Search iTunes Radio Stations on Mac – CHEAT

Today I finally figured out how to search radio stations on iTunes on my Macbook.  It’s not easy to do, but here’s the guide for how I did added search to iTunes radio.  You will need: iTunes and a Mac to do this.

First, open iTunes and open the radio list tab at the top.  This will be just the normal list of all the radio stations.  Now, expand out each of the lists of radio stations by clicking the tiny arrow on the left of each row.  Start from the bottom of the list and work up so you don’t have to keep scrolling each time.

Now we need to select/highlight all the radio stations in this huge list.  To select all the radio stations, click on one of the stations to highlight it, then in the top menu choose Edit -> Select All.  Alternatively, you can hold CMD + A.

With all the radio stations highlighted, look at the top menu bar and choose File -> New -> Playlist from selection.  Remember to select playlist from selection and not just playlist.  It will take around 30 seconds and you will now have a playlist made of ALL the radio stations in iTunes!  Give the playlist a name like “radio stations playlist”.

At the top tabs of iTunes, to the left of Radio you will see Playlist.  Press this and you will see all your playlists, including our shiny new radio stations playlist.  Now, if you click on your radio stations playlist in iTunes you can  do a search in the regular search box and it will search the radio stations.

  1. Bingo! Thanks…helped out a ton!.

  2. Great tip, thank you. On a Windows PC, you can select all the Genres (with CTRL-A) to add them to a playlist, without having to expand each one first.
