When you say "iTunes played it" what do you mean? Were you listening to one of the internet radio stations listed in iTunes? If so which one? I'm curious.

I should also add that there is a 1980 program on Antheil that Charles Amirkhanian did for KPFA on the internet archive: http://www.archive.org/audio/audio-details-db.php?collection=other_minds&collectionid=Antheil

Also, Other Minds has just released the complete string quartets by Antheil, performed by the Del Sol Quartet:

Thanks for the Antheil links. I've heard his later, more conservative orchestral music as well as the 1920s modernism stuff, but haven't heard any string quartet.

No, I haven't heard any Antheil on the streaming stations online. I was using iTunes in shuffle mode to randomly serve up Ballet Mecanique.

For future googlers, I'll also point out the music mavericks site has a Real stream of Ballet mecanique.
