Kexp Faces New Challenge

Oh No You Didn't!!!???!!!

Non profit radio stations have always had a special place in the world of music royalties as they as not making a profit off of the tunes they are playing.

Now the royalty rates are going to be raised and the non-profit stations are losing their status, putting them all in a position to have to raise more funds to 'compete' with the big commercial stations, nay to operate regardless of the competition.

Whether you are an artist or not, it makes sense that artists and the music industry have the right to do some collective bargaining for a better piece of the pie (within reason) but at the same time it really should be taken into consideration the fact that non-profit stations like are doing so much for small time artists and the not so well known crowd not to mention the community.
