That HST quote has inaccurately appeared online as directed at "the music business", and "show" biz, and, as you have it, "radio." But the industry Mr Duke was addressing was:

"The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason."

That quote is outta HST's Generation of Swine. See Urban Legends for a history of its subsequent misquoting.

And that line about "also a negative side" was added by a less-skilled wordsmith.

Speaking of neg-sides, no evidence Albie said that either; tho plenty have looked, including the The Albert Einsten Archives.

LongCat, tho, has taken on 9 lives of its own, and dozens of vids.
