>Help WRRV stay in business!

>This morning I was talking about the tax congress is threatening to levy on local radio stations. This tax is basically a bailout to the record companies that could cripple live and local radio. Stations like WRRV would be charged thousands of dollars for the music we supply free of charge to the listeners. If passed, this tax would cause us to eliminate local jobs and virtually erase our ability to play a variety of new and local music on the airwaves.

    >If the tax revenue is truly going to the record companies as the website claims, then the tax should be considered illegal. Tax revenue is supposed to go for public projects (road, schools, etc.) not to private companies.
