Controlling the charts

Chavez 's government is now regulating music on the Radio and making it hard for Venezuelan Radio stations to play foreign (i.e. american) music, in the name of cultural promotion and social responsbility. Naturally, the local musicians who no one listend to cause they SUCKED are happy about the new law, because their music will play more on the radio now and they will make more money. The only people poised to lose are the actual Radio stations, who will very likely lose their younger audience because they keep playing music that they don't really like. Venezuela, such a fun free country. No wonder 2% of the population tried to get passports all in one day the moment passports were allowed to be obtained again. People are loving the socialist paradise so much that they wanna get the hell out. Yay for socialism.

I think there is a very good chance that the local musicians play better music than the kind of commercial, studio-based crap that most radio stations (especially commercial radio stations) churn out.
