Can any of these legislators get their head around the business model for radio? Their comments make them seem out of touch and unable to grasp simple economics. Performance royalties are fine but performers receive promotional value and historically were partners with advertisers and radio folks in providing the mechanism for free emergency alerts, news, sports. If they pull out, and we know advertisers are pulling out - how does radio continue to provide all this for free?

I have no problem paying the artists performance royalties. So where do I send our rate card so I can be paid for my air time. I guess I can ask the record label reps when they call our station asking us to play this artist or that artist.
