Bob on NPR's Morning Edition today
Hey, I wanted to share some good news. I was featured in a short radio piece today on Morning Edition, which is broadcast to more than 12 million people on 600 NPR stations across the U.S. and beyond.
You can listen to the three and a half minute segment here:
It was about the recent FCC payola ruling (which I wrote about last week on my music promotion blog) and, more specifically, Clear Channel radio's new attempt to give exposure to local and independent musicians. But the agreement they ask artists to make is raising a lot of questions. So I, and the two other people reporter Neda Ulaby interviewed, chimed in with responses.
The funny thing is, Neda had contacted me two days ago for a different story. I got the message too late to be included. I was kicking myself for missing a great opportunity to reach millions of NPR listeners. But I emailed her yesterday, and she just happened to be working on another story that was even more up my alley. I feel very lucky.
Thanks for letting me toot my horn (and I think we all know how painful that can be :-)
