How much money does a given band (say Led Zep) make each and every time a song of theirs is played on the radio?

I don't expect anyone to be privvy to the actual details of Zep's professional set-up, but does anyone have any insight as to what they (or any other staple of classic rock stations) might make every single time a song is played on any radio station in the USA - i.e., I've always imagined money continuously trickling into a Scrooge McDuck style vault.
1/10th of a penny, a penny, a nickel, five bucks? Any educated guesses?
Or perhaps they might receive a flat yearly fee for unlimited play?
