Subject: RE: master tapes [re:Phoebus/Bulmer !!!?]
Would a campaign for more airplay of the recordigns that are available help in the UK?
Well, yes but I don't suppose you will be surprised to know that Unearthed/In Search Of/Penguin Eggs don't feature on max rotation lists. Nor does Game Set Match, though, yes, Nic Jones will get 50% (I believe) of the PRS fee because the BBC pays a blanket annual levy to the PRS.
A clip of a track from Penguin Eggs (Planxty Davis) is played weekly on Mike Harding's show while he reads out the Top 10, and that's about it. And he has been known to play the CD-Rs and been roundly criticised for it.
But just how can you compensate for over two decades of lost royalties on sales?
