i think it is a case of mainly the record companies that coordinate with the radio stations and then those that pay the most get on the 'A' playlist and the others get further down. the 'A' playlist is the one where you always hear the same song played over and over again on the commercial stations.. its either that way or the artist needs to be downloaded a lot from the internet in order for the powers that be to notice them. kinda like the way that those myspace groups (erm artic monkeys - i think) did.
Em, you are absolutely right. Label backing is almost the only way to get radio play, at least in the US. The alternatives are mostly internet and college radio stations, who are much more likely to play new and "underground" music.

Slightly off topic but how bout the music channels?! There are some Christian based ones, which could show his older stuff which could gain him a bigger fan base and then somehow introduce the new stuff.... was just a train of thought!
