It's rare that you will find me not listening to music. The fact of the matter is that as long as I can remember I have loved all kinds. I even play guitar myself, mostly oldies like Bob Dylan, but I also dabble in a little more modern tunes.
Few of us can say that we haven't been touched by the gift of music in one way or another in our lives. Music can move us in so many ways and evoke thoughts and emotions like few other forms of art.
Almost everyone has a favorite radio station, and if are like me, that station is local. Mine is WXRY right here in downtown Columbia, SC. They play a mix of music, but mostly Alternative and that appeals to me.
Now Congress has been nice enough to propose a radio performance tax that would tax radio stations for playing music. This proposed tax would be direct attack on the finances of local radio stations my favorite and I'm not sure how the little guys would manage to stay afloat should this Bill pass Congress.
What do I suggest, leave the music alone and let it be free my friends. For years radio stations have played music for free much to the delight of listeners and music fans from all walks of life. And now I am threatened with static from my speakers as a result of the bankruptcy of those that bestow these musical miracles upon us.
