Eliot Spitzer, NY’s Attorney General has brought to light a two year investigation that exposes illegal payments from record companies to radio stations in exchange for playing certain songs. Gifts, trips, even outright cash payments for air time are illegal, called ‘payola’. Both the record companies and the radio stations are charged with wrongdoing.
