Thought of the day via Richard A. Peterson.

Thank you Richard A. Peterson aka Yoda.

To win acceptance by radio programmers under such conditions, new artists had to sound much like established artists. Thus, year by year, commercial radio music (in the US particularly) became ever more predicable as the reproduction of style replaced the raw communication of feeling.
