The traditional "Internet Radio" feature is not gone from iTunes 12.7.
The feature for offering free for all internet radio streams was not removed from the application but may be hidden and is now named competitively with another "Radio" feature within iTunes.

I still have the "Internet Radio" in iTunes 12.7 – I'm in the screenshot below using an US Apple ID, and I can confirm that I also have the "Internet Radio" with my Danish Apple ID – maybe you just need to re-add the menu item?
It seems that the answer is:
There's no way to disable Apple Radio from taking up space in iTunes and Music on iOS.

According to zdnet.com (today),
iTunes Radio is only available to U.S. account holders at launch and is also available in iOS 7.
The article is about iTunes 11.1, but I presume the same goes for iOS 7.
Wikipedia (today) states:
Currently, iTunes Radio is only available in the US.
TechCrunch (yesterday) has:
Also remember that iTunes Radio is for ...
I have observed a skip limit being enforced - after 5 rapid skips on some of the canned stations, one is left. This matches Apple's list of common questions that states 6 skips per channel in an hour is the current limit.
Also, the skip control seems to be disabled for some narrated tracks like the Guest DJ when the artist is speaking. There's nothing in ...
A lot of people are making this mistake at the moment, the like/love button in Apple Music is not for creating a playlist.
It's there to tune the 'For You' section in Apple Music to your tastes so it can better make suggestions of what music you should try out next.
As you've pointed out in your comment there is an ability to create a smart playlist ...
I have the same problem, and found something that worked. I skipped around 30 songs, listen to 3 on the same station (as I am writing this post) and no ads.
iPhone 5s - No commercials there
2 PCs: one with Windows 7 (64-bit) and the other Windows 8.1 (64-bit);
I have iTunes Match and still here ads

iTunes Radio runs as a separate app. If it's running in the background, the tab may disappear from Music. Double-tap the home button to see background tasks, swipe left to find the running Radio app. Swipe up to kill it, if needed, and the tab in Music returns.
Yes, it is possible but requires a bit of copy/paste work.
Select the radio stream in iTunes on desktop.
Select the Edit menu, choose the Song Info entry (or just press Command + I). This will show you the location URL of the stream. For example, the first stream in the 80s Flashback section is A_A 80s with the URL of http://listen.shoutcast.com/a-...
I don’t use iTunes Radio, but judging from the nature of how iTunes plays music, I can safely say you can scrobble to Last.fm with Bowtie.
I don’t know if there any apps that can scrobble to Last.fm on iOS though since streaming to iTunes Radio requires the official app, which can’t be used by third party apps.
If you are an itunes match subscriber to get unlimited skips:
locate and click on Match on the top bar (where it says "songs albums artists etc")
either subscribe if your subscription has ended or hit "Done" at the bottom right of the screen
play a different station for 10 seconds and then go back to the original one
enjoy your unlimited skips!
It only works if you add your own custom stations. When you are listening to a song that you like, press on start station from artist or song. Then that new station will have the options on: play more like this, or never play this song. :)
You should count on it shutting off pretty much at the two hour point:
Why does the music stop playing after two hours?
iTunes Radio will time out if you don't interact with your system or
device for approximately two hours. If this happens, simply access
iTunes Radio again and choose a station to continue playing.
It seems to be either a bug or a rights issue with Beats One. There is no fix at the moment.
A workaround is to choose your Airplay device as the system output. Option + click the sound icon in the taskbar and choose your Airplay device, or select it in Sound settings.
I have found a workaround in that using another app to play the music you have from Apple Music / Music.app bypasses all streaming.

The interface is refined / simpler visually than Apple's new interface and it lets you control a bit more of the UI than Apple's app does. I find myself using it to only play songs that are ...
Yes, as an Apple Music subscriber, I can verify that paid Apple Music subscribers may go back and listen to replays of most Beats 1 shows on-demand. I personally use this feature to catch up on Zane Lowe all the time. It will allow you to go back and listen to shows up to a couple months old. For example, right now I could go back and listen to many shows ...
It looks like you still can play your iTunes Radio stations from Siri. From what I understand, you're correct in your observation that you no longer can view all of your stations outside of the "Recently Played" section, but Siri can both create new stations and play existing ones on command.
I tried playing/creating stations through Siri a few times on my ...
I know this situation. Even if you use the correct Apple ID to authorize music playback, you may still see a repeat request for authorization. This can happen if you're logged in to your Mac using a simple user account, which doesn't have the correct privileges to allow iTunes to update its internal files with the authorization information.
The solution ...
The top-right corner of iTunes has a search box. Typing in "mongol" gives "Search for "mongol" in Apple Music". That gives "Showing Results for "mongol" in Apple Music".
Listed amongst that is "Top Results", "Albums", "Songs", "Artists" and "Stations". Stations lists radios such as "Mongol Radio".
Seems a rather roundabout approach, but at least it works.
In iTunes you should have two options for listing to radio stations.
1) Internet stations (available in all Countries) - see the "Internet" tap under Music, where you should be able to find live stations with or without news.
2) Radio (not available in all Countries) - see the "Radio" tab under Music, this will only offer music streaming from a standard ...
This was a bug in iOS 8; it was fixed in later versions of iOS.
I encountered it personally whilst I was working at Apple and so did others: https://twitter.com/BenedictEvans/status/519966240484622336

The stream you are listening to does not provide artist/title information. I confirmed this by playing the stream in VLC. VLC (and iTunes) both show artist/title information when playing a stream from CRIK FM, for example.
It should appear as a Radio icon on the lower left. If it doesn't, try closing the Music app by swiping up from the App Switcher view, then re-starting, making sure that you are connected to the Internet when you open the Music app.
Also, make sure that you are using an Apple ID that is based in the US.
I think this is a standard practice of streaming services because they do have to pay (a tiny amount) for each track they play, so they want to make sure you are still there and aren't streaming their money into an empty room.
From the Apple website:
With iTunes Radio, you can easily share stations via AirDrop, Mail, Messages, Twitter, and Facebook. The stations you share continue to change as you tweak the mix, so your friends can listen to music that adjusts with your evolving tastes. Show off your favorite stations, or tune in to your friends’ to hear what they’re into.
