the public wants what the public gets:

“what happens with both national and commercial radio is that public taste becomes curated by the playlisters and even when ‘specialist’ shows are put on, this just further curates things into ‘genres’ and so when musicians go to make music they have to bow to these genres and slot in to them and in the end the material means of communication determines what the music sounds like to a greater extent than the artists.”
