RIP: Frances Preston
“Maybe not a well-known person outside the music industry,” Spence says. “She rose from receptionist at a radio station to CEO of BMI and probably did more than anyone to make sure songwriters got paid whenever their music aired.”
“Here’s something she said,” says Admin. “‘Music is not just out there in the air for you to pick out for free, because if the creator isn’t compensated, there’s not going to be that music.'”
“Amen,” says Spence.
“And it applies to other arts as well.”
“Goes without saying.”
“Too late. I already said it.”
Welcome Sam in the big city.
