Because the target demo *doesn't like that*. Those cuts are turn-offs
for most listeners. Of course it's different obscure tracks for
different listeners, but a station can't afford *everyone* tuning out.
You are displaying classic rock-snobbism, I'm afraid. Just because
music geeks like being surprised, it does not follow that Jane
Background Listener wants to hear that in the coffee shop or on her
drive to the supermarket -- particularly if it takes the music out of
the realm of "pleasant background noise" and demands that she pay
attention to it.
