asks:
Does KDVS pay artists royalties? How does that work?

No, although I do remember one group (I think Warner?) keeping track of stuff. There’s all this weird legal stuff having to do with ‘promotional copies’ and broadcasting (and then streaming on top of that), as well as the fact we’re a non-profit station.

oh, okay, thanks for the link! i don’t think i’ve ever heard of this group before. unfortunately, since KDVS streams online, we’re beholden to DMCA rules, which limit how many time we can play an artist consecutively or in a set time period unless we have permission, so it’s hard to do tribute shows on all one artist without having to technically ‘break the law’. i could probably very easily do a ‘Japanese musical comedy’ special though! it would take a lot of research though…
