My radio-listening time is confined to the 10 minutes it takes me to get to and from work and it's always NPR/Classical music. BUT, if we're going to talk about what's popular, we have to look at the impact of payola.
I need to make a correction. T-Pain is the name of the person who sings the song "I'm In Love With A Stripper." I first heard this song while CD shopping at Best Buy. After about two minutes of shopping, a young guy, who was an employee, went over to the department's listening station to put this song on full blast. Immediately people shopping for CDs jumped up, as a I did, wanting to know from where the loud noise was coming. I could not believe this boy was able to play THIS song as loudly as he did without the manager ever saying a word. The lyrics were incredibly offensive, and I thought his song choice was inappropriate for playing in a place of business.
