Hmm, I-Polka, I-Party!  All Polka, All The Time.  For internet radio, it is
possible to have a station that is completely subsidized and very
narrowcasted.  I wouldn't be surprised if there were all polka stations on
the 'Net.  Perhaps satellite radio will grow in the future to hundreds of
satellites providing narrowcasting services within the subscription rate and
have a heavy ad rotation.
