Getting a proper PRS licence for a podcast costs a LOT of money - when Kooba Radio did it they had to have several big fundraisers to get it, and it took TIME - and don't forget Tom Robinson would probably also have BBC accountants/regulations to go through too. I'd imagine that would be more the issue.

As for that article about CDs - it's from several years ago, things have changed a LOT. And anyway, sending a WAV is a million times easier for bands - no covers to make, no CDs to buy, and it's INSTANT.

Also I don't think you can have a go at anybody who sits through HUNDREDS of demo tracks a WEEK! When we used to run a label I found it hard to get through the 10-20 we got a week (our name was alphabetically near the top of lists...) without SOBBING with WOE!

That's interesting and conflicts with my understanding....bands are waiving their rights to a royalty fee on his podcast show or they don't get played on it. If the beeb is having to pay extra for the podcast show, why are the bands not getting their share?

I don't think the website thing is really having much of a go at him. It is just a minor and fair criticism, really. If he wants to help the bands, he should let them know that this is the standard approach but not how he likes to be approached. I think this thread will be useful to everyone thinking of approaching him, as there is plenty of useful insight going on here, right?

The WAV benefit is still predominantly a future benefit, unfortunately. The plugger I am using wants 100 cds for a one single campaign. Seems so wasteful.

I think Mark's point was that they're having to waive their fee so the BBC don't have to pay extra for the podcast.

Out of wonder, isn't this covered by the blanket agreement with PRS?
(edit: not forgetting that most radio-show podcasts have the music cut out)
Toot toot.

This is what I would have thought. The BBC makes one huge payment to cover all music broadcasting, I thought? But he may be right, you know. A podcast may fall outside of this as it is not really broadcasting...or is it?!

Haha imagine Tom Robinson's podcast mixtape without the music!
