Payola or pay-for-play, in the context of broadcast radio, is the playing of music or other programming by radio stations in exchange for payments or other valuable consideration given on behalf of a record label. Record labels engage in this practice in order to promote their artists on the radio, which is the most successful way to gain publicity. Until recently, federal anti-payola laws have only been enforced three times since their enactment.
