The FCC, in a move clearly influenced by the Bush administration’s recent move to (even farther) right of center has been ruthlessly cracking down on what the administration calls “indecency in media”. The change in heart started by a national flashing by Janet Jackson has resulted in the CEOs of both Viacom (parent of CBS, MTV) and Clear Channel having to answer for their content to Congress.

It is hard to argue with the power of terrestrial (FM and AM) radio as a force in worldwide media. As XM touts its 1,000,000th subscriber and Sirius brags about 200,000 – terrestrial radio can stick its nose up at such tiny listener groups. Examine any large major market in U.S. and there can be more people actually listening to one popular FM radio station (perhaps syndicating Howard Stern) than all of the subscribers of XM and Sirius combined. Add to the volume of listeners the fact that terrestrial radio has fewer stations thus a more focused and consolidated audience than any of the new radio challengers. Consolidation has been both the best thing and the worst thing to ever happen to radio in its history. After Congress loosened the rules for station ownership in 1996, a handful of companies boomed and now three own the majority of stations around the country. ...

Never underestimate the power of the 12 volt, car audio market when it comes to launching a new audio-video technology. Right after XM Satellite announced its 1,000,000th subscriber, its competitor Sirius announced they have hit the 200,000. Much of this growth is driven by pre-installed automotive systems. XM is found in many GM cars while Sirius is just now making it into Mercedes Benz. Creative dealers are able to burry the cost of the service into a lease (or purchase) payment in a way that adds value to the car and potential profit to the dealer. And with more and more radio groups owning more bland traditional radio stations, consumers are willing to bet $12 per month to find some new tunes to listen to during their daily commute.
