  • Whatever Happened to Radio Bumper Stickers?

    mramsey1@ix.netcom.com (Mark Ramsey)
    25 Jul 2015 | 12:19 pm
    Once a radio industry – and radio station fan – mainstay, it’s hard for me to find a radio station bumper sticker on the road nowadays. “People won’t put bumper stickers on their cars anymore,” some say. That’s nonsense. People won’t put just any bumper sticker on their cars. Just as people won’t put just any vanity slogan on their license plate or just any branded frame around it. People brand themselves and their cars with symbols that give their lives meaning and tell their story to those who watch from afar. This is the story of who…

    SiriusXM and Fox News have joined forces in the creation of a new news channel that will launch this Fall.  The channel will be called Fox News Headlines 24/7, and in contrast to current Fox offerings on SiriusXM, will be geared toward radio.  Currently, many popular news channels on television simulcast the coverage to satellite radio.  This concept is fine for most instances, but the medium of radio does indeed differ from television, thus, having a show built for a radio audience is a welcomed addition. Fox News Headlines 24/7 will be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a…
  • SiriusXM Scores Court Victory In Pre-1972 Recordings

    Spencer Osborne
    24 Jun 2015 | 12:33 pm
    The issue surrounding royalties for songs recorded before 1972 has not typically been a friendly one to SiriusXM.  The satellite radio provider has found itself on the losing side of an argument about the payment of royalties for music fitting into that category.  The issue arises because the royalty laws used to pay artists took effect in 1972, leaving a debated loophole of music that predates the law. Flo and Eddie, from the Turtles, and famous for the song Happy Together filed suit in California for unauthorized use of their material, and are working their way across several states with…
