One of the upcoming segments on Beats 1 radio is called "Requests," and it appears this broadcast will feature songs that have been requested from Beats 1 listeners around the world. According to a tweet from the Beats 1 Twitter account, users can request a song by calling in to the station.

The Apple Music Tumblr site has a page that's dedicated to requests, listing phone numbers around the world for listeners to call to request a song. In the United States, the number for making a request is 1-310-299-8756, or 1-877-720-6293 for toll free.

There are also phone numbers listed for Canada, the U.K., France, Japan, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Australia, Italy, Ireland, and New Zealand.

"Requests" will play at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, and the segment will be hosted by Travis Mills, who is located in Los Angeles. Mills' show will come on following Ebro Darden, who goes live at 3 p.m. Pacific Time. It is not clear if the requests that Beats 1 is asking for will be limited to the "Requests" segment or if they'll also be played at other times on Beats 1 radio.

Beats 1 radio debuted today at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time in hundreds of countries around the world. It provides 24/7 live music and will also include news segments, interviews, and more. Beats 1 radio is part of Apple Music, which also includes a new on-demand streaming service (free for three months) and Apple Music Connect, Apple's new artist-focused social networking feature.

Song requests?! Why wouldn't I just immediately stream what I am wanting to hear? Why would I call in, wait for someone to pick up, make my request, and then sit around and hope they play my request? This is 2015, not 1955.

They should have a stream in the app or on twitter or something and people can like or upvote requests or an algorithm can read whats being requested most. Who ****ing phones things anymore? we're in 2015 people, lets bring features from the future not the past.

I think the attraction for people who do this is more about getting your favorite song out to a global audience, both in terms of exposing people to something you like, and also just to feel like you got your literal five minutes.
