Re: “More Bands Are Chasing Fewer Bucks

I have asked myself over and over…..Is there anyone eles that has been feeling like..secretly...little by little...all our "free world" rights are being stripped away?? Isn’t ANYONE paying attention?
While I have personally felt robed by the deregulating of airtime, as well as two other laws, and tried to educate anyone who would listen….I have found more often then not, that, NO ONE is really paying attention…

I comend Piero as a local musician, with deep roots in the Bay Area, for his atriculate stance on this subject.

As Piero has pointed out, Clear Chanell has managed to become the dominant position holder in radio, venue ownership, and concert promotion, all separate, but related industries.
Because of its dominance, Clear Chanell has the ability to cross-promote, thus giving onto itself extrodinary power…And, in the guise of promotional payment, artists and producers must pay Clear Channel for air time….If, and only if, you fall within their guidelines, personal agenda, you stand a chance…maybe..
Ultimatly, at the very least, this can be thought of as robbery of the First Amendment right to freedom of speech…A forcing into comercial coformity. Never mind that your vision is being crushed…Another perfect example of how our liberties are being taken away, right under our noses..

While this paticular regulation doesn’t hurt my livleyhood, it angers me no end.
Besides air and shelter, I need music…and I will be damed if I am going to be told what and who I can listen too…..
