Top 7 Who Have Destroyed Music

September 23, 2019

Top Seven Who Have Destroyed the Music Industry.

7. The bought off music media that promotes instead of reports.

6. Radio Conglomerates, the I Hurt Radio bunch.

5. Streaming giants that pay percentages of pennies!

4. Ticket sellers, that make the average price $90.

3. 2. and 1. The Big 3 Labels, Warner, Sony, Universal, the 3 companies, that control everyone’s career in music – even yours!

Goals of the Arts and Media Revolution

April 22, 2019

What is the arts and media revolution for? We work for these changes:

1. Fair guaranteed reviews to all.

2. Fair media coverage based on quality not promotion budgets.

3. Pennies for play – the author would get a penny for every click on say a chapter of his novel, or book anywhere it’s posted online.

4. The break up of those few companies that make the art, distribute the art, promote the art, and then review the art. They can do any one of those, but not all four! That is too much control in too few hands. The arts of a country cannot be owned by a few conglomerates.

5. City art centers, that are open to promoting all local authors (or artists of any kind.)

Ralph Nader looks at NPr and PBS

February 19, 2019

Dear Reader,

Search out the link for “The Realized Temptation of NPR and PBS” by Ralph Nader. He addresses a lot of my concerns in their media fairness. I would add that the problem includes all their art coverage too.
Right now all songs are NOT considered, and they actively block any progressive music, musicians, or music ideas connected with the music revolution.
