TUAW Tip: iTunes Radio uncensored (video tutorial)

If you enjoy listening to music via streaming-music services such as Spotify, Rdio or Pandora, then you are going to get a kick out of Apple's newly released iTunes Radio.

The service has been awesome over the last two months of beta testing, featuring a great mix of music and stellar quality playback. The one thing that had put a bee in my bonnet until the iTunes 11.1 update released today had been the butchering censorship of the music on iTunes Radio.

Talking about this with fellow TUAW Blogger Steve Sande, he showed me how to fix this. I was so excited, I had to make a video to share with you.

In iTunes 11.1, click on the Music icon under Library in the side bar and click the Radio tab. Under the station choose slider, you will find a toggle button to "Allow Explicit." Simply turn it on or off as you please.

On iOS 7, while playing a selection from iTunes Radio, you will see an information "i" icon in the top-center of the screen. Tap the information icon and there you will find a similar "Allow Explicit Tracks" toggle.

So whether you're listening to Jay-Z, Jay & Silent Bob or Jane's Addiction, you can now enjoy the music your mama wouldn't approve of just the way it was meant to be.
