Yeah this is not new, I was able to do this 20+ years ago, by simply phoning in or emailing in to a station and requesting a song, obviously your not going to call a heavy metal radio station and request a motown song, well you can if you want but that wont really get you very far. its not rocket science, and I was able to do this even before the internet was mainstream, and I would get my requests played. I have even requested songs to be played for a friend who is having a birthday, try asking spotify to give your friend a shout out on the air, I have not seen it done before. Any ways you guys are a little to hyper on this spotify stuff, chill out. We know newer technology has its pros and cons but sit back and take a deep breath and think about the bigger picture. We know technology of streaming music and its potential, but you guys are making all kinds of crap about how Conventional FM Radio Broadcasting is broken and all, which is very rong, stop taking it out on FM Radio, FM did nothing wrong, it serves its purpuse if you don't like it, then go ahead and binge your music to your hearts content, remember, spotify is doing what net flicks did for TV, letting people binge the crap out of music, but your also forgetting Radio is not just playing music, they also play news, weather, sports, comedy, skits, etc, spotify only streams music, and all these kids who are hooked /addicted to it will go thru their generation and drive to work listening to drake all the way, but someone like me who is smart, will listen to something important like news, traffic, weather, road closures, make it to work on time while the spotify addicts will be stuck in gridlock, but thats okay, they will have their favourite drake song playing so i guess it will be okay.
