FCC Ownership Rule Changes
In a democracy it is important for our voices to be heard. While signing petitions might not help, it can't hurt. The FCC is voting the first week of June to change the ownership rules as to how many stations can be owned in one media market to a single entity. While it appears that the FCC vote is headed to change the rules, we still need to make our voices heard to our elected representatives in Congress.

Hopefully these rules won't be changed, and then we can go after some of the vertical media companies that are stifling the voice of artists have free speech. If you are going to pull my music off your airwaves, pull it because it doesn't fit your playlist anymore, not because of something that I say.
