The United States is the only democratic country in the world where artists don’t get paid for radio airplay. Currently, the short list of countries that share the United States’ position on this issue includes: Iran, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Rwanda. On February 25th join music makers and music lovers alike in urging Congress to support artists’ pay for radio play.
