I got this IM from a friend of mine, who also is a DJ at my fave radio station called Party Central Radio. This is what it was:
DJ Siouxsie: THERE IS ** NOW ** Something ** YOU ** can do to save internet radio! READ CAREFULLY! As You Know..Internet Radio is endangered by the legistlation that is currently under appeal that will make it INCREDIBLY expensive to air anything other than 100% original music. The royalties most stations pay through Loudcity, etc, will be multiplied to a crippling degree. A NEW BILL has been introduced to the House of Representatives, to SAVE Internet Radio. The following is a link to all of the info YOU will need to easily call your local representative and MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! (Phone number and name for your representative, even a script.) LET YOUR REP KNOW YOU WANT THIS BILL SUPPORTED! Click here: http://www3.capwiz.com/saveinternetradio/callalert/index.
DJ Siouxsie: Sorry…Proper link follows… Yahoo truncated the link: Try this, guys…and YES…this is DIFFERENT than signing an internet petition. This is your LOCAL representive, that needs to know how his/her constituents want the vote to go on this bill! http://www3.capwiz.com/saveinternetradio/callalert/index.tt?alertid=9679516&type=TA
I hope all my readers can support this Bill as much as I am….Help us save internet radio..
