Not only is it encouraging that radio is still the place for new music, I think it's re-assuring that people continue to know that radio is a smart place to hang out.
Radio most certainly has a more "living" quality than a web link, even if there are no humans on duty at the station.
Well, the 3 stations I work for are full of humans. Busy writing news, producing commercials, doing sports broadcasts and yaking on the radio and playhing music.
As is the case with most of the stations within 100 miles of here.
