Dave’s Lounge #64: Saving the Music Fan

Click to listen

You cannot imagine how stoked I am to bring you this week's show.

Last week, I secured permission from Nettwerk Records to play one song each from two of their artists — Ivy and Delerium. You may recall that Nettwerk broke away from the RIAA last January and decided to fund the defense of a music fan sued for sharing files over the Internet. At the time, Nettwerk CEO Terry McBride declared, “Suing music fans is not the solution, it's the problem.” The label then decided to sell MP3s through its online store, Werkshop, and submitted a large portion of its catalog to eMusic.

Nettwerk didn't have to work with me when I contacted them, but this is a forward-thinking label, and I'm thrilled to play their artists on this show. I sincerely hope this won't be the last time a Nettwerk $artist gets played on a podcast. Be sure to support their Save the Music Fan campaign, because music lovers shouldn't be penalized for sharing culture.

Ivy and Delerium aren't the only recognizable names on this week's show. Moloko and Morcheeba both popped up recently on the Podsafe Music Network. Is your music up there yet?
