Payola follies!

We all know pay for play has been the rule in radio for decades. Aside from 'you can fuck the talent', what was your greatest encounter with this honest profession?

Re: Payola follies!

Not just the music part either.  Numerous occasions when people tried to influence news coverage by offering various incentives.  Some of them even worked at the stations. (Sales weasels trying to get the news department to give prospective sponsors a plug included.)
