I have created a universe where a pioneering radio station takes the a daring and stunning leap into all commercial radio. By eliminating music, only commercials are to be played, encouraging consumers to buy a slew of amazing new products and services.
This new model works so well that all existing radio stations change their programming to this new format, killing music as we know it.
All remaining msuicians are forced to write jingles as original music is a thing of the past. If that wasn't enough, an all-seeing and all-knowing fully sentient mall is created and shopping within him becomes mandatory for all citizens. It's really whacky and funny though!
