Roger Daltrey The Internet Has Stolen The Music Industry
Who frontman says internet’s stolen the record industry gives musicians no incentive to make new music
Roger Daltrey says The Who are unlikely to ever release another album because the internet has “stolen” the music industry. The frontman admits he and guitarist Pete Townshend have discussed the possibility of making a follow-up to 2006’s Endless Wire, but as it stands he can’t see it happening.
The Who unveiled standalone single Be Lucky in 2014 and at the time, Daltrey hinted that a full album would follow. But he tells Rolling Stone: “We’ve talked about it, but it’s not going to be easy. There’s no record industry anymore. Why would I make a record? “I would have to pay to make a record. There’s no royalties so I can’t see that ever happening. There’s no record business. How do you get the money to make the records? I don’t know. “I’m certainly not going to pay money to give my music away free. I can’t afford to do that. I’ve got other things I could waste the money on.” Asked why the record industry is in the state that it’s in, Daltrey adds: “Well, it’s been stolen. The way the internet has come about has been the biggest robbery in history, like musicians should work for nothing.
“You get paid for streaming, my ass. There’s no control. Musicians are getting robbed every day. And now it’s creeping into film and television, everything now”
“You notice, the internet is a slowly but surely destructive thing in all ways. I don’t think it’s improved people’s lives. It’s just made them do more work and feel like they’re wanted a bit more, but it’s all bollocks.
“They feel like they’re wanted because they got 50,000 Facebook likes or whatever, and it’s all bollocks. Look up for a while. Live in the real world.”
In the same interview, Daltrey discusses The Who’s early tours with the Beatles, his admiration for Eddie Vedder and the aims of his Teenage Cancer charity.The Who will play at October’s California mega-festival Desert Trip, along with Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and the Rolling Stones. They are also on the bill for the Mad Cool Festival in Spain on June 16 and the Azkena Rock Festival, also in Spain, on June 18. On Saturday, June 11, The Who headline the Isle Of Wight Festival.

What Could Make This Day More Perfect Not Much Really Unless You Start Wishing For More Money
Lovely sunny day here in the deep south and it is winter. What could make it more perfect well not much really, unless you start wishing for more money, but one thing I find is people who are close to you, you all know the kind, the ones you have helped get started in the music industry or what ever for that matter. Then you find out you are the subject of much talking behind your back. Don’t it get right up the old left nostril so to speak.
I have come across this many times not only in radio land but all through life, what drives these ever so nice people when you first went out of your way to help them, suddenly to turn on you or someone you know. Did they suddenly get so much better at doing their job or yours for that matter or is it the unseen/unknown fiend whispering in their ear telling them you should be replaced and that they could fill the empty spot.
By the way I am not just talking about my own life’s experiences but have seen this happen to friends on one occasion I was able to very deviously get a new rule written and voted on into the trust deeds and so save a man a lot of heartache after all he had put his heart and sole and I might add thousands of dollars into the radio station that really stuffed the movement against him. (By the hell it made me feel good). What a wonderful world we live in .. take care folks Wyn .
May the sun always shine on you .. take care folks Wyn

STEVE EBERHARY [Eberhart Broadcasting] (Dallas, TX) Hey jim- News from North Texas! My station KGAF AM 1580 has an upgrade. KGAF began as a 250 watt daytimer in 1947. In 1985, the FCC approved a directional nighttime pattern. This Spring we were given a CP for 1200 watts non directional day and 275 watts non directional night. Big improvement for us and the station can now be heard daytime to Dallas/Ft. Worth to the south, Pauls Valley OK to the north, almost Paris TX to the east and close to Wichita Falls to the west. Much improved through Sherman/Denison/Durant, Denton and McKinney. Get our app to listen free in the app store or google play store, search for “KGAF”. Steve eberhart

JAY WALKER [CBS Radio Dallas/KJKK FM/Infinity KTSA-550/KTFM FM/Own Jay Walker Prod/Jay Walker Competitive Audio consultant 40 Plus Years In Radio] (Dallas-McKinney, TX) Subject: Radio Revolution. Jim It never takes long for the ‘Big Guys’ to figure out how to take from ‘the little guys’. Back in the early days of Internet radio I had three ‘stations’ Rock, Classic Country, and oldies on ‘Live 365’. I never made a dime. I did it for the joy of broadcasting. Then along comes the RIAA’s draconian royalty fees which are much higher for internet broadcasters, than ‘on-air’ for profit radio stations and if you didn’t pay, you’re served a lawsuit, which can extort thousands of dollars out of your pocket just because you wanted to play radio for the fun of it. Similar thing with LPFM, it was setup for community stations, but most that made the cut are either religion or the allocations are bumped for new translators for failing AM stations. As a result ‘the little guys’ are left in the cold again. My best to you as always. Jay Walker

Your Blind Spot – Part 1
But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Psalm 19:12
There are parts of yourself you’ll never see without God’s help. In one sense, you know yourself better than anyone else does. You alone have access to your inner thoughts, feelings and judgments. In another sense, you know yourself worse than anyone else does. Why? Because we rationalize, justify, minimize, forget, and embellish—and we don’t even know we’re doing it. We all fall for the self-serving bias. We claim too much credit and accept too little blame. We pay attention to experts who agree with our opinions, while ignoring or discounting all evidence to the contrary. Our memories are not simply faulty, they’re faulty in favor of our ego. The book Ergonomics cites a survey in which 83 per cent of people were confident in their ability to make good decisions, but only 27 per cent were confident in the ability of the people they worked closely with to make good decisions. We’re stunned when someone sees past our defenses into our souls. It’s not that they’re geniuses, it’s just that we’re sitting in our own blind spot and without the work of the Holy Spirit within us, much of the time we can’t even see our sin. The Psalmist wrote: ‘How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer’ (vv. 12-14). That’s a prayer you should pray—every day.
Prayer Heavenly Father,
help me to listen to You and others You put in my path who are there to help me see my blind spots.
Help me then to do what needs to be done to adjust to them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
