    I was under the impression that RDIO was on its last legs.

        As someone who does business with Rdio and loves the product, you two in the peanut gallery can keep yapping. Cumulus CEO just said in an interview that there are lots of development plans for Cumulus programming on Rdio as well as rolling out ad sales and that the founder has backed it with $200M so far. Plus all the recent partnerships, hiring. Companies like Cumulus, Shazam, Facebook don’t continue to work with companies they think will go belly up.
