    These two organizations seem to be dependent on music industry bribes to play muzak. If the music industry stops paying for play, they may have to if the present trend continues, will the two ray-dio giants crash too???

    Can someone throw me a bone here? What yearly contracts?

    OTA radio no longer exists for me, having gone with XM. But I believe XM is part owned by Clear Channel, truly the evil empire.

    I'm not sure I follow Phillip...? Sounds nasty though....like an evil conspiracy! [​IMG]

    It seems to me that the two ray-dio giants and the big five are symbiotes, interdependent, or am I wrong? Que?

    Another good question Rachael may be this:

    "What does this mean for the emerging satellite radio business?"

    I sat next to a national marketing exec for Sirius on the plane last night and he thinks that satellite radio may become the best outlet for emerging artists due to the number of channels they provide and the reach into urban areas.

    If there is less payola, then satellite radio is not directly impacted since their business model does not factor that in...

    Lee, if satelite ray-dio is also designed to sell CD's, shouldn't it have some impact too if the present downward trend continues. The music channels on my DirecTV are very much hocking muzak....
