FCC: More Indie on the Radio

FCC proposal could end payola probe: “Sources said that radio station groups would be required to set aside a certain amount of airtime for music produced independently. […] It was unclear how the airtime deal would work and what would qualify as ‘independently produced’ music, but the sources said that some of the commissioners are concerned about the major labels’ ability to dominate the airwaves.”

Think there’s any chance that this could actually make commecial radio listenable?
