Recently iTunes radio quits streaming on its own - for all stations - sometimes after 20 minutes, sometimes after 1 minute.
I have a hard wired adsl connection, consistently over 1+mbits - good solid connection.

Never had this problem before - itunes radio would play for hours.

Any ideas as to where the problem is?

    just a quick addition
    I have a pc (HP pavilion) hooked up to the same modem/router, and running iTunes, and have no streaming issue with iTunes radio on this machine............

    this really ***** for me - as iTunes radio works better on a pc than my mac???!!!
    I only own the pc because we need it to run a special printer at work

    My Mac is having the same problem.  iTunes Radio stops streaming after a minute and sometimes after 5 minutes. 


    I switched to Pandora to see if I had a connectivity problem.  Pandora just keeps on playing.

    Don't waste your time with Nudgestream.  It doesn't work.  Here is the error message I get on my MacBook Pro with iOS7:

    "You can’t open the application “Nudge Stream URL.app” because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."  The app is dated 2007.  No wonder.

    I just started having the exact same problem on a Windows XP PC with iTunes Radio 11.1.2 (the latest iTunes version) at work; I can play Pandora through Firefox without it stopping. So it doesn't seem to be an issue with my internet connectivity or bandwidth. At home I can play iTunes Radio on my MacBook Air without interruption. I've searched the Apple forum without success. My experience suggests this is an iTunes for Windows problem?
