Thanks for that.  I think that was Robin Seymour introducing the Rationals.  Remember Club 1270?

We're already on Aretha's side on that one.  Note that it's US terrestrial broadcast (AM/FM) stations that are exempt from paying royalties to performers. Internet & satellite stations definitely do pay.

We listen to RP because it is supposed to be an alternative to mainstream radio which overplays songs like this.

Aretha Franklin is amazing BUT "RESPECT" IS NOT HER ONLY SONG!!

I challange RP to play any other song from Aretha Franklin!

I always thought the acronym was "TCB" - which meant "take (or taking) care of business", even before the BTO song or Elvis Presley's use of the term.
