KCRW's Part In Day Of Silence

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Internet Radio Stations around the country are protesting a proposed increases of over 300% to royalty rates on streaming audio broadcasts by partaking in the Internet Radio Day of Silence. Our personal favorite KCRW is observing this day and been talking about it for two weeks. Also observing the day of silence is LAister Andy Sternberg's WOOZRadio.

Read about it more in either the LATimes article or Washington Post.

And then please take action. Call your Representative or Senator. Really a call takes two seconds, go ahead pick up your work phone. No one is watching. And don't be worried that you'll have to make some long impassioned pitch. You'll only get an intern or receptionist but they're required by law to count your call as a vote so that when a bill goes to the floor and everyone is lobbying from different sides, your legislator is under pressure to listen to you. Look up their numbers here.
