The enduring value of radio cannot be overstated - it is an intrinsic part of the fabric of American life.
From protecting the foundations of democratic ideals and delivering lifesaving information during emergencies, to playing the music, entertainment and sports that make us feel connected to our communities, listeners have always counted on radio to be there for them. And artists depend on radio to get their music to the masses, turning musicians into superstars.
