Back To The Future: Newbie Has DJ-Picked Playlists & No 30 Sec. Spots

Don't know if it will be a success, although 1 million listeners in Beta is a pretty good launching pad. "Dash Radio" claims it lets expert DJs pick the music (although the linked article relies a bit too much on the Snoop Dog example for my taste.) and avoids traditional 30 sec. spots in favour of occasional jock read mentions. Hmmm, it may be 2015 radio, but it sounds suspiciously like formatics right out of the 1950s or 60s!

Dash Radio wants to bring FM radio into the modern age

(By the way, if you want to sample this, there's no need to actually sign up for anything, despite the pop up window that comes up at the site's home page.)
