Apple Music’s Beats 1 station will broadcast from hosts’ homes


Office workers aren’t the only ones who can work from home during the coronavirus pandemic — radio DJs can do so, too. Show hosts on Beats 1, Apple Music’s internet radio station, will be broadcasting from the safety of their homes starting today. According to Apple, they will use FaceTime on their iPhones to conduct interviews with popular musicians like Elton John and Hayley Williams.

The fact that internet radio shows can more or less continue as normal could be seen as a testament to the technology and infrastructure in place.

FYI Engadget that technology has been in place for over 26 years.
