Another Government Employee: Radio any business on earth including Fark and internet radio exists to sell ads and only ads. It hasn't meant much to music for at least 25 years.


Fixed that for ya, chief.
No sh*t it exists to make money, that's why anything exists. And they sell those evil ads by attempting to appeal to the general public, which up to this point included playing music they will like, along with entertaining on air hosts, contests, etc. Even the commercials are created with appealing to listeners in mind.

Interestingly, while watching Dennis Hopper's commentary on Easy Rider the other day he said back then you only needed the artist's permission to use their music.

CSN offered their latest album, but he had already dug up a bunch of songs he wanted to put in the movie.
