We Pay Artists Radio Won't Play

RIAA will milk this golden goose until Pandora dies or is forced to sell itself. They never thought a company like Pandora would survive this long, those fees were designed to prevent or destroy. Reduction of these rates should be bundled with a requirement for including and activating the FM chip in all mobile devices, not just cell phones but tablet computers too. That should satisfy radio folk that they are being thrown a bone and not just under the bus while Pandora innovates and prospers.

Hopefully these payments go straight to the artist and not to the record company who would strip it down to nothing leaving the artists scraps as usual.

I've recently matured beyond the much sought after 25-54 family reunion target demo. Even as a close minded old guy I have to admit that Pandora has introduced me to some bands that now populate my itunes library because of their sound rather than their marketing enertia.
Seems there should be a commission based revenue stream possible for terrestrial radio and the various digital distribution platforms to earn a piece of for their direct influence on sales volume. Historical play list records, market based zip codes for retail and IP addresss for downloads create a trackable conversation starter.

Wow! That's amazing support for artists like us.

Someone our there Is puting artists first ! ;-)

We've submitted our material to Pandora however we are still awaiting a response.

We are an independant duo working without major AirPlay. A little support from you guys would truly help.

Thanks In advance
