Radio has been around since the 1900s and has continually been a source of entertainment ranging from beginning talk shows to news and music. The impact of Radio is so diverse that even movies and tv shows showcase radios in fictional worlds where standard ways of communication are lost. So what has radio done for artists and musicians? Radio and the radio stations along with the programmers and personalities on radio shows often pick songs that are doing good going anywhere from sales or music streams. In 2017 Nielson Entertainments reported on the surge of streaming and music consumption. The streams for that year increased by 58.7% compared to streams in 2016 where there was a 12.5% increase in streams. For most people driving to work in the morning listening to AM/FM Radio is how they come across new music.
