There are changes introduced to radio feature and as a result it seems there are two separate ways to get a radio station for albums, artists and songs. It's quite confusing.

Real radio station, which can be created by going to Radio menu on left-hand bar on desktop (Station in Your Library on mobile), hitting 'Create New Station' button, typing in the name of song/artist/album and clicking on the result) looks like this:
In conclusion, creating a Radio (e.g on a song) will yield two different results - a playlist and a radio station based on the song.
