Speaking of Changing Business Models

I suppose other than history and tradition there isn't necessarily any case to be made that radio deserves to have some special exemption from royalty payments, but I just can't fathom that it would really make business sense to choke off free promotion.

Flip side is that it could be the best thing that ever happened to non-RIAA performers. Maybe the fine folks at Merge Records and elsewhere should support this.
