Some good points, but I think actively discovering new music has become a minority interest.

I don't see how "radio" and "discovering new music" fit together. The major radio stations in my country play highly standardized pop/rock/singer-songwriter juice on rotation, heavily advertising every addition to their playlists as the new discovery by artist XYZ.

Now, yes, but having grown up with John Peel on the radio I like to think it wasn't always the way things were. I imagine radio in the late sixties & early seventies was how the majority got to hear all the new music that was creating such waves. Perhaps I'm just romanticising.

Simple: RDS compatiable radio that displays it in text. Hear a new song, look at the display. In fact if more radios had it as a basic feature, they would be less chatter between songs.
