Why is music on the radio mixed so poorly?

Radio is for people who need to be spoon-fed their musical tastes.

The majority of you, it seems, have been doing this longer than I've been alive; I'm interested to hear what you have to say about this. I've only been doing this for a relatively short time and I can do waaay better than these "professionals" are doing on the radio. (I'm not trying to toot my own horn)

If I can do better I can only imagine what some of you, that have been doing this forever, can do.
its because they traded deph of mix for loudness.
