Future of Music Newsletter #28

Sun, 03 Nov 2002 18:10:27 +0000

Dear friends: Thanks for tuning in, and for hanging tight. As usual, we’ve been hard at work on many fronts since we last wrote – organizing events, writing, drafting responses to FCC rules, engaging with the low power radio community, learning more about digital distribution services, and grantwriting. We thank everyone who wrote sent us feedback about newsletter #27 – we’re glad it was informative! But we also heard that the newsletters are too long. So…we’re putting on our “economy of language” hats for this report as well as shifting some longer pieces to the website where folks can peruse them at their leisure. Let us know if this makes the newsletters more readable. And now, the news: Mark your calendars! FMC Announces Plans for Policy Summit 2004 For the past three years, the FMC has hosted Policy Summits in Washington, DC shortly after the New Year. But instead of pushing our luck and biting our nails down to the cuticles regarding the unpredictable weather in January, we’re shifting our Summit for 2004 to the glorious springtime! So mark your calendars now for the fourth annual FMC Policy Summit. Future of Music Coalition Policy Summit 2004 Date: May 2–4, 2004 Location: George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium, Washington, DC Website for event: http://www.futureofmusic.org/events/summit04/ In addition, we’re expanding our schedule this year and organizing two one-day events outside the Beltway. In January 2004, FMC will be collaborating with the Experience Music Project and the Seattle NARAS chapter for an event in Seattle that will focus on positive and proactive solutions to radio consolidation. And on February 25, 2004, FMC will join with Hastings College of Law for a one-day music law summit in San Francisco. We’ll be sending out a separate email with details about these events shortly. For more info about events: http://www.futureofmusic.org/events/upcoming.cfm. And if you want to help us spread the word about these events, we have “Save the Date” postcards that we can send to you for distribution at shows, on tour, at record shops, at work, school, or conferences! Email us a bit about yourself and a mailing address at volunteer [at] futureofmusic [dot] org if you’re up for it. Activist Musicians Embark on a Tell Us The Truth Tour This November, acclaimed activist musicians Billy Bragg, Tom Morello (The Nightwatchman), Steve Earle, and Lester Chambers of the Chambers Brothers are embarking on a thirteen-date “Tell us the Truth” tour to perform concerts and raise awareness on current media reform and fair trade issues. With support from unions, environmental, religious and media reform groups – including Jobs With Justice, Citizen Trade Campaign, Common Cause, Free Press and the Future of Music Coalition – this tour will be the most visible challenge to corporate domination of the public discourse in recent history. The tour is partnering with Rock the Vote to register voters, as well as scores of grassroots media and trade groups to build an educated electorate in preparation for next year’s presidential election. The tour will raise funds to support future artist/activist partnerships and organize future Tell us the Truth Tours. We hope you can make it out to one of these great shows in your area. And tell your friends!
