The way you tell it, radio's not so bad now

Ha ha, just kidding, radio sucks. Nonetheless, there are a few stations who have been bucking the US radio industry standard of "only play the single we tell you to," which I think is pretty cool. For example, Chicago's Q101 spins "My Violent Heart" more than any other track off the album. KROQ in LA tends to favor playing "The Beginning of the End," while 89x in Detroit takes a shining to "Me, I'm Not," but have not been averse to playing "In This Twilight," either. Last but not least, KEXP in Seattle takes to playing "Vessel" as their lead track off the album. I thought all this was interesting -- thanks to everyone who wrote in.
