Angry Anyone know of radio stations that play full songs, but NEVER radio edits?

I don't understand why they don't play the full version of Lady Gaga - Edge of Glory on my local radio stations, even though they play the full version of Meatloaf - Paradise by the Dashboard Light, which is even longer. Can someone please tell me what online radio station plays the full version of Edge of Glory? WHY on Earth do the FM radio stations in my area cut the last 1/3 of the song off, even thought they play an even longer song all the way through? I hate it when they cut songs off like that!

Here's the length of each song (and some extras), just so you get an idea of why I'm mad at the FM stations for cutting songs off early:

Paradise By The Dashboard Light (8:28) (Station plays the whole thing )
Lady Gaga - Edge of Glory (5:20) (cuts off about 2/3 of the way through)
Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse Of The Heart (7:02) (Stations keep cutting off parts of the intro and outro.)
Styx - Show Me The Way (4:38) (Radio keeps cutting out the acoustic guitar solo in the song's bridge)

Now do you see why I'm wanting them to air the full versions? I'm also searching for stations that play the "cold end" (no fade out), like in this video:



Anyone know of an online radio station that plays those?

It's not technically a radio station, but have you tried Spotify? I use Pandora to find new bands and then add them to Spotify.

I don't think they can.

You'll have better luck taking your own initiative () and requesting from the station a full version.

You might consider actually buying something which you want so badly.

I thought it might be insultingly obvious to suggest just having on hand a full version of the song to play at one's leisure.

Then again, we are talking about someone with chronic "Does somebody have a solution to my problem" syndrome.

Okay, 2 quick questions, one about Google Play and the other about Spotify.

Is Google Play worth looking into? I want a Spotify or Pandora-type experience with the ability to go offline for a few hours at time.

Oh, and the second question is...Is there something I can do to make Spotify notice the information I've stored in their client locally? I don't like the idea of people spying on me, but I totally want them to remember my Spotify stuff from one excruciating Windows re-install to the next.
