Yes radio is important to record labels, local advertisers and local communities and the individual public. Radio is powerful and I was taken aback a bit when radio was challenged by NAB's David Rehr at the Convention last week..."TV has generated great public awareness with their on-air campaign regarding HDTV, can
Radio say the same for its on-air promotion of HD Radio !" Radio certainly would if the message was, "you will lose radio unless you switch to HD by June 12th". That would certainly generate awareness !!! Radio is powerful and radio needs to get the message out to the public how record labels are duping/lobbying Congress and limiting the future ability of radio to deliver what the public wants, the music they like, free.
