Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - June 20, 2002

Consolidation of radio station ownership isn't popular, and DJs should have more air time for audience-interest songs rather than, "be required to mostly play songs of artists backed by recording companies".

These are two of the findings resulting from a Future of Music Coalition public opinion survey on citizens' satisfaction with commercial radio and which is part of a larger research study looking at the effects of radio consolidation on musicians and the public, says the FMC.

Partnered with the Media Access Project and the Rockefeller Foundation, the survey asked about basic listening habits, opinions about programming and available content and, "the role of Congress in addressing issues such as radio station ownership consolidation and 'pay-for-play' issues".

Specifically:

* "If it can be substantiated that radio stations are paid to give air time preference to the music artists supported by record companies, the public approves by a 68 to 24 percent ratio for Congress to consider passing laws to ensure that all artists have a more reasonable chance of having their songs heard

* "Half of the respondents -- 52 percent -- say radio would be more appealing to them if it offered more new music, less repetition and more music of local bands and artists

* "By a ratio of six to one, radio listeners prefer a long, rather than a short, playlist that provides them a greater variety of songs and less repetition during the week

* "Seventy-five percent would like to see low power FM (LPFM) stations expanded in their communities, especially if they offer (a) the music of local bands and artists, (b) talk shows on issues of local interest and (c) health, science or fitness programming. Additionally, 74 percent favor legislation to expand the number of LPFM stations in the United States."
