Re: "...just how much more money does Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flats need at the expense of hard working small market announcers and stations?"


Substitute John Hogan, Lew Dickey, and Alfred C. Liggins, III for Swift, McGraw, and Rascal Flats... and the question is just as valid.

Scott's comments are refreshing. Pandora is
no more than a wired juke box. It is the same concept as Muzak. Muzak delivered songs over
telco lines. As to Panadora, it is a wanabe radio
station, but it is not. It is similar to Muzak but delivered over the web. But it does not lack for Chutzpah.
It is now critical of radio, which it wants to be but is not. An ideal solution is to make all fees for radio performance combined and include ASCAP, BMI,and performers, with one monthly payment.

Does not matter about Pandora. Bottom line, Pandora is a distribution means for music. Nothing more than that. Just give it a little time, and Google will devise a "better mousetrap" for music distribution. They will make Pandora irrelevent.
