And this is one area where terrestrial radio is at a disadvantage to 
satellite radio.  Terrestrial radio has to be at least somewhat mass-appeal 
so as to attract a large enough audience to be appealing to 
advertisers.  Satellite radio doesn't have that problem...they have your 
subscription fee, you could listen to the all Eminem channel for all they care.
