520    Despite the growth of digital media, traditional FM radio 
       airplay still remains the essential way for musicians to 
       achieve commercial success. Climbing the Charts examines 
       how songs rise, or fail to rise, up the radio airplay 
       charts. Looking at the relationships between record labels,
       tastemakers, and the public, Gabriel Rossman develops a 
       clear picture of the roles of key players and the 
       gatekeeping mechanisms in the commercial music industry. 
       Along the way, he explores its massive inequalities, 
       debunks many popular misconceptions about radio stations' 
       abilities to dictate hits, and shows how a song diffuses 
       throughout the nation to become a massive success. 
       Contrary to the common belief that Clear Channel sees 
       every sparrow that falls, Rossman demonstrates that 
       corporate radio chains neither micromanage the routine 
       decision of when to start playing a new single nor make 
       top-down decisions to blacklist such politically 
       inconvenient artists as the Dixie Chicks. Neither do 
       stations imitate either ordinary peers or the so-called 
       kingmaker radio stations who are wrongly believed to be 
       able to make or break a single. Instead, Rossman shows 
       that hits spread rapidly across radio because they clearly
       conform to an identifiable style or genre. Radio stations 
       respond to these songs, and major labels put their money 
       behind them through extensive marketing and promotion 
       efforts, including the illegal yet time-honored practice 
       of payoffs known within the industry as payola. Climbing 
       the Charts provides a fresh take on the music industry and
       a model for understanding the diffusion of innovation
