Search iTunes Radio list by making a new playlist Apps
You can search the iTunes list of radio stations if you add them to a playlist that you created.

If you click the built-in Radio list in your iTunes Library, you can see lots of internet audio streaming radio stations, apparently chosen by Apple, organized by genre; but you can't search the list. The iTunes search field in the top right corner is grayed-out.

If you make a new playlist, and drag radio stations into it, you can search in that playlist.

I wanted to search for any radio stations that might play, for example, 'dubstep' or 'Hindi' or 'reggaeton.'

I made a new playlist and dragged radio stations into it. I tried dragging all of them, but iTunes gave up after 999 stations. I also see that iTunes won't retrieve station names now, but that may be because I tried dragging them all (that would be at least 1500 stations). Maybe my network's sysop shut that off. Anyway, I'll try again tomorrow, but the point of the hint is that you can use the Search feature if the radio stations are in a playlist.

Also, note that you probably should select all stations and uncheck them, because if iTunes is set to Shuffle mode and it chooses a radio station, it'll stop shuffling because an audio stream never comes to a stop.

[crarko adds: I remember putting radio stations into playlists long ago when I use iTunes Radio; never tried to search them though.]
