Subject: RE: What's This New Tax for Free Radio?
Jim wrote: And John - you keep calling it a "tax".|
Jim, that's because "others" call it a tax. I'm not even sure what I found was related to what was aired. So, rather than write about something I don't know much about, I asked a local radio, CBS station manager, about what I heard. Here's his response:
"It's a" Performance Royalty Tax" that recording artists are trying to get from radio on top of the licensing fees we have paid the record industry for years.
His name is, Jim, too :-)

That, it does, sir!!!
