You pick the hits -- literally

We live in a crowdsourcing age: News! Restaurant reviews! Social media! Now, two local radio stations will be taking the radically populist route in determining their playlists. From Fast Company:
Two old-school radio stations are getting a decidedly modern twist next month, deriving all their programming from the social web. KHIJ-FM and KVBE-FM, a pair of Las Vegas stations, will be entirely sourcing their music content from listeners, who will vote for the next song online. A company called Jelli is behind the venture, and both stations will be re-branded as "Jelli" stations.
