From what i understand, a lot of that cost was infrastructure, not code. That can be reused even if the application was burnt to the ground and started fresh.
Don't talk down to me like I'm some doddering old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn.
Actually it was the opposite, that you are a snot nosed kid that doesn't understand history past your last summer break from high school.
Only works if you like popular music in your area. If you like something more alternative, or just from a different part of the country, local broadcast is rather inadequate.
