I'm pretty sure you can only play stuff that has been licensed to go on air, which is usually only singles, so it is probably illegal :icon_cry:

 

I'd be willing to bet that RH would love you to do it anyway though ;)

 

(And may I say I'm very jealous that you get to have your own radio broadcast)

The national radio station over here often plays full albums when they come out, and they play non-single tracks all the time. They're a relatively popular station, too, so I can't imagine there's anything illegal about it (in Australia at least)

UK radio stations only ever play singles. But to be honest, the UK is the only country in the world where people actually obey silly laws.

not true. radio 1 i think played elephant by the white stripes in its entirity when it came out. zane lowe also played lonely souls by unkle once, and there's other albums too but i forget.

A lot of bands and record companies send albums to the radio stations. Here at the college I go to they play almost anything that is requested. I have requested Wolf at the Door, Idioteque, and LIAGH. I am sure they are breaking some type of law. But only Metallica would care.

When Q101 played Icky Thump all the way through, Jack White got pretty pissed. But damn was it awesome. I don't think Radiohead would really give two shits. But if they did they would just say "that wasn't cool man" and then you wouldn't do it again and everything would be cool.
