A national agency that collects royalties has to make sure it goes to the right place
if ASCAP and BMI don't do that , they don't work according to laws......

I also work for a local radio station ( FM based) and we can play anything we want since we pay our for playing copyrighted music to Buma Stemra and Sena.

i also worked for a commercial AM station from 2005 untill 2012 and we paid a fixed amount so we didn't have to send them our playlist.

just think of the example you gave about artists selling cd's .
if you pay for playing copyrighted music it's the task of the agency to make sure it gets to the artist that are playing on the station.
If they don't do that there is something wrong.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.
