Default Maybe no more FM/Stevie music on the radio in 2017

Stevie's buddy Mr Azoff is running the show with the airplay rights and looking for more money from them.I dont know if FM/Stevie falls under this but we will see in 2017.My opinion.This is BS.If it was not for radio.Theses artist will be washing dishes at a restaurant or working at Walmart or singing in a cheap pub.

Rampant corporate greed killed radio a long time ago, just like it's slowly killing the live music/concert going experience.

No surprises here, unfortunately...

Azoff-led GMR Proposal Offered By RMLC

By ajacobson on Dec, 24 2016 with Comments 0

Merry Christmas, radio industry.

The Radio Music License Committee has given its members five weeks to consider a nine-month license agreement with Irving Azoff’s Global Music Licensing (GMR).

The agreement would be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2017, and conclude Sept. 30.

The newly agreed-to deal and Jan. 31 deadline for a decision gives AM and FM stations an immediate reprieve and eliminates any concerns over pulling dozens of records from music radio station song libraries, so as not to run afoul of legal rights violations.

RMLC members became aware of its proposal on Christmas Eve. The proposal was codified on Dec. 21. Prior to its proposal, stations faced a Dec. 31 deadline with reaching a rights agreement.

RMLC leaders drafted the interim agreement following communication on Nov. 22 and Nov. 28 sent to members regarding its attempts to try to reach some sort of agreement with GMR.

A letter send to RMLC members regarding the proposal, from RMLC’s Ed Christian, reads, “As the result of further discussions between the RMLC and GMR, GMR will make available to radio stations an interim license. This interim license will provide stations that choose to accept it the ability to perform GMR compositions during the
term of the interim license.”

Stations are asked to contact GMR to determine the specific fee for the interim license.

GMR will make the interim license available to all stations that wish to take it (excepting those that have already entered into a license with GMR).

A little confused by what all this means.

So basically GMR/Azoff owns the rights of a lot of big-name songwriters and has decided that radio stations should have to pay a larger percentage to play this music, or risk getting sued?

How would this work, practically speaking? Does this mean that radio stations will have more incentive to broadcast lesser-known works to refrain from paying large sums of money?

I listen to the radio every time I drive in my car so that I can rediscover forgotten oldies and discover new tunes to add to my music collection. If I hear a song that appeals to me and if the next song doesn't, I move the dial. And this is what I have been doing for years. I can play my own selections when I am at home. But without being in the car, I would never hear brand new music. I laugh at local radio stations begging for our money to help keep them afloat. If they vanish from the dial there is always another station. If every station vanishes, there is always my ear buds.

Are you upset because you didn't sell enough records or more bummed out because all the music was downloaded for free?
