I agree that Beats1 is better than I thought and more diverse. I want to hear the songs and more than not the DJs (The Big 3 — Z, J, E) talk over the songs or cut the song short so they can talk more. They rarely play 2 songs in a row without talking. They pip the same upcoming show way too much.
It is a show more than a radio station. Beats1 disrupts my thought and I find it difficult to have on while working. I move back to Radio Paradise.
Also while Beats1 is diverse it is a little too Hip Hop and Dance heavy.
You should say more about your idea for the indie app developer.
Last Comment. Have you heard a indie band that is only on connect he played or highlighted yet? Just curious.
