I have a gutsy suggestion for radio stations as we continue to face the performance tax/royalty debate. Get stations to agree not to identify artists or song titles for a month. Anybody who has answered telephones at a station knows that radio obviously spurs music sales (judging by the phone calls alone)! So let’s refuse to identify our content to the public. Direct all phone calls to the congressional committee and tell our public why. Or better yet, forward calls to our advertisers. Maybe then we could mobilize a large segment of the economy against a threat by a single industry.
