All commercial radio stations usually have a set playlist but can sometimes play requests from listeners. You don't tend to hear requests on BBC stations though.

In the US, most stations have fixed formats and music lists which the DJ has to follow with some allowance for requests if they fit the overall format. In some cases, a speciality show will play things within tier speciality and some stations have brokered programs, where someone buys an hour and plays what they want, within the limits set by the stations. There are always limitations based on good taste, legalities and copyright payments.

BBC radio has set playlists, some of the local ones have request shows, they're not allowed to swear or make any political statement, however they do have the power to not play a record should they think it not fit to air
