Stop the Radio Royalties Bill in Congress
Help us stop an unfair attempt to force radio stations to give a big bailout to record companies

Have you heard about this? A bill has been introduced in Congress that would keep your favorite radio station from playing the music you love! It’s true! You see, most of the record labels are now owned by foreign companies and they’re demanding that Congress pass new laws requiring radio stations to pay them millions of dollars a year or… quit playing music! We think they’re looking for a big bail out at radio’s expense. Music stations would have to turn to talk, news or sports to try to make a living. You would have to find another way to hear your favorite music without having to pay for it yourself. This is just not right.

Since the very beginning… American record companies and artists have encouraged radio stations to play their songs. That relationship has been a big factor in the careers of artists like Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood and scores of others who have openly thanked radio for getting their music to you.

A Radio Royalties Bill...H.R. 848...has been introduced in Congress. Please, help us stop this bill by calling your Congressman or Congresswoman and telling them to oppose the radio royalties bill. You’ll find the contact info you need below.

Thank you for your help!
