Big PAYOLA Settlements for Radio Airplay, Indie Artists, Local Artists...

Hey this is good news for indie artists and music enthusiasts
who will appreciate 'sonic freedom' in radio airplay instead of PAYOLA

"Radio listeners weary of hearing the same songs over
and over may have something to cheer about:
Broadcasters have tentatively agreed to anti-payola
settlements that could shake up music playlists at
some of the nation's largest radio chains.
Four major broadcast companies would pay the
government $12.5 million and provide 8,400 half-hour
segments of free airtime for independent record labels
and local artists, The Associated Press has learned. . ."

Yes there's more to the article but I wanted you to know
the good news in brief.

Cheers, Tim
