Yes, artist needs more listeners before radio works.

 

So start a trend by listening Underground music!

hpguru is right here, I'm not sure exactly how it works but an artist's tracks need to have been listened to a certain number of times before a radio station can be started. I think it is so Spotify can "learn" what people listening to those tracks also listen to, so it can generate related tracks for the radio algorithm.
