Re: Reply to get stations to play C. Aguilera's "We Remain"!

I'm pretty sure playlists are determined by political reasons and/or whatever radio is being paid to play, I think that's a little obvious.

Re: What's wrong with Radio and how would YOU fix it?

Radio used to help set trends by responding to its audience-not anymore.
