Uematsu Getting Play Time On Terrestrial Radio Stations

This is something I randomly came across today. I was listening to 104.9 XLNC1 classical radio down here in San Diego, and my song identification software on my phone wasn’t working properly when I was trying to identify a song. I immediately checked the website’s playlist, and noticed that the song before the one I was trying to identify was none other than “Maria and Draco” from the Distant Worlds album. While I didn’t hear it myself, I was surprised to see that it had been played.

Who would have thought growing up that Nobuo Uematsu’s music would be playing on public radio stations around the world? Have you come across any occurrences like this, and do you think it’s a sign of the acceptance of game music and of Uematsu as one of the industry’s most influential composer?
