The rest of the ad copy reads as follows:
"Radio and musicians have a powerful partnership.
"Through airplay, interviews with performers, concert promotion and giveaways, radio delivers $2.4 billion in promotional value to artists and labels each year.
"And radio is still the #1 way listeners discover new music – 245 million AMERICANS listen to radio each week.
"Let’s keep the partnership strong."
