I say the title of this post should really be "Another Nail in the Coffin of Radio". It's things like this that are turning more and more people on to the prospect of getting all their music from the web and other sources.

David Hooper

Agreed.

The big issue is that "indie music" is a niche market and the old school method of distribution, whether via a big ass broadcast station or brick and mortar stores costs too much to make a good profit.

It's a lot easier to make money with something like the Internet, which has no towers, no FCC licenses, no trucks, no warehouses, etc.

The only big issue is that it's not as easy to access, at least for most people, as turning on a radio or going to a record store.

That is going to change in the near future though...
