Apple Music's Beats 1 radio station launches from Los Angeles
July 1 , 2015
Apple has launched its Beats 1 radio station, with Zane Lowe hosting the first show in Los Angeles.
Pharrell's number 'Freedom' was premiered at the show, and 'City' by UK band Spring King was the first song to be played on the new radio station.
The first such venture by the tech giant is being seen by experts as an attempt to popularize its Apple Music subscription.
Other hosts on Apple Beat 1 include Sir Elton John and Drake.
