How to Delete an Artist from an iTunes Radio Station on an iPhone

iTunes Radio is a fun and simple way to listen to music on your iPhone for free. You can even create your own personalized stations, then customize the music that plays on the station by adding new artists to the rotation.

But you may discover that adding an artist to a station changes the types of songs that are played, and you may not like the change that occurs. Fortunately you can remove artists that you have added to your iTunes Radio station and modify the influence that they have over the songs that you hear.
