I have also "borrowed" MP3s of many artists from my friends and nearly every time I've liked the music I have run off and bought more of their CDs. If I were only to learn about new music via the radio, I'd be listening to Brittany Spears 24/7 and brainwashed by Clear Channel. In my opinion, lesser known artists benefit from their music being shared since radio stations have such a dismal selection of music on them these days.
