Did you miss this excellent Op-Ed piece by Nancy Sinatra in the New York Times? I know I did. Here’s the link.
This is yet another reason to support the Performance Rights Act going through Congress right now. Nancy’s father, Frank Sinatra, the greatest singer/performer of the 20th century, was a vehement advocate of this bill. All those wonderful songs we associate with Sinatra’he didn’t write them. Whenever they’re played on the radio, his estate gets nothing. When he was alive, nada also.
The National Association of Broadcasters is being investigated now regarding those horrible lobbying commercials they’re playing on certain radio stations. I’ll have more on that tomorrow. In the meantime, read Nancy. These boots are made for walkin’ over conglomerate radio.
