You may remember KOP’s brought up a Rolling Stone article last month titled. Want to Get on the Radio? Have $50,000? Payola At Radio Never Went Away, says New Report.  Well, the FCC and RIAA are checking out some new payola claims.

Billboard reports:

In an official letter sent Wednesday, FCC commissioner Mike O’Rielly asked the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to investigate allegations of payola in the music industry.

“To the extent that payola is currently occurring within the industry, I am writing to ask for your help in ensuring that the practice be discontinued,” the letter reads.

Payola — the practice of exchanging money or goods with radio stations to secure airplay for artists — was the subject of a Congressional investigation in 1960 that ended the career of iconic American disc jockey Alan Freed. Following the investigation, Congress amended the Federal Communications Act to require broadcasters “to disclose if airplay for a song has been purchased.”

Plus, KOP concludes his interview with Award-Winning Television Producer Harry Lowell-founder and Executive Producer of NiteLite Pictures and documentary and television producer Ari Wilhelm, the producer of the #WELAGENTE Documentary.
