A letter from Reps. Tony Cardenas (D-CA) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) to FCC Chairmanyesterday (1/17) called on the Commission to protect radio and Television programming delivery via C-band satellite.

The Commission is considering allowing wireless broadband services to use the 3.7-4.2 GHz spectrum used by content producers to deliver programming on C-band satellites. The letter notes that "nearly every television viewer and radio listener depends on C-band spectrum to reliably receive content" and asks, while not opposing additional uses of the spectrum, that the Commission ensure that program suppliers be protected and "Made whole for costs incurred" as a result.

The letter drew praise from the National Association of Broadcasters, the American Cable Association, NCTA-The Internet and Television Association, and National Public Radio, which issued a joint statement thanking the Congressmen "for their support in protecting incumbent C-band users from interference, higher prices or service loss as the FCC considers new uses for the spectrum band.  Tens of millions of Americans rely on the C-band spectrum usage must preserve interference-free access to this popular radio and TV content."

PIRATE Act Comes Up Again
Two Congressmen are trying to reintroduce the PIRATE act (Pirate Illegal Radio Abuse Through Enforcement Act), a bill to combat pirate radio broadcasters. The bill passed the House last year but died in the Senate.

The bill, H.R. 583, was reintroduced Wednesday (1/16) by Reps. Paul Tonko (D-NY) (left) and Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), both co-sponsors of last year's bill.  The PIRATE. Act would increase fines for AM and FM priate radio operators to a maximum of $2 million ($100,000/day of violation). It would also require "enforcement sweeps" every five year sin teh top-five markets iwth pirate activity.

“Protecting our public airwaves is critical for preserving community safety, whether for first responders or for working parents who don’t want to expose their children to uncontrolled hate and obscenity,” said TONKO. “Whether a frequency is being used in emergencies to coordinate community response and save lives or by parents who just want to tune their car radios with their kids in the car, our communities are better served when broadcasting is governed by the rule of law. I am hopeful that my new House colleagues will join in support of the PIRATE Act and we can pass this commonsense legislation without delay.”

“We need to make sure that these illegal operators do not interfere with public safety communications,” added Bilirakis. “These illegal actors not only hurt our economy, but they can prevent people from receiving important emergency information during a crisis. This bill will give teeth to enforcement of illegal radio operators by hitting them in their pocketbook and better stop these illegal actors for good.”

“NAB thanks Reps. Tonko and Bilirakis for today’s introduction of the PIRATE Act, which strengthens the FCC’s enforcement tools to combat illegal pirate radio operations,” said NAB EVP of Communications Dennis Wharton. “Unlicensed radio stations are not merely a nuisance to legitimate radio broadcasters who play by the rules. They also pose a threat to public safety by disrupting communications between air traffic controllers and airline pilots. We strongly urge bipartisan support of the PIRATE Act and we look forward to its swift passage.”

“The New York State Broadcasters Assocaition applauds Congressman Paul Tonko and Congressman Gus Bilirakis for introducing the bipartisan PIRATE Act,” said NYSBA President David Donovan. “Today, illegal radio stations interfere with this nation’s Emergency Alert Service, cause interference with air to ground communication systems  at airports, ignore all FCC rules and disregard all federal and state consumer protection laws.  The PIRATE Act will give the FCC additional tool to address this harmful and dangerous situation.”

“The National Association Of Black Owned Broadcasters is pleased to see that Congressman Paul Tonko and Congressman Gus Bilirakis  are introducing the bipartisan PIRATE Act,” said NABOB President James Winston. “Illegal pirate radio stations have for many years exploited African American and other minority communities across the country.  They interfere with legal broadcast operations and do not comply with any laws designed to protect consumers. The PIRATE Act provides the FCC additional resources for combating these illegal operators.  We look forward to working with the Congressmen to get this bill passed.”

KPM Goes Digital
The KPM Music Library has fully digitized its catalog, which is now available to download and stream in its entirety. The move by Sony/ATV Music Publishing division EMI Production Music means every recording in KPM's catalogue is now available for sync licensing and is also on the digital music services, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and Amazon.

“We are proud to have taken this initiative to make KPM the first major music library to be fully digitized and available to our global broadcast clients and music lovers to enjoy,” said EMI Production Music Senior Content and Distribution Manager Paul Sandell. “There is no bigger name library music than KPM, which is reflected by its rich and diverse catalogue spanning 70 years, including some of the best-known television theme tunes. We know this launch will not be lost on the sampling community as some of the rarest gems from the EMI vaults will be available for fans to access for the first time since the original ‘60s and ‘70s vinyl pressings.”

KPM's music library has more than 30,000 recordings in every genre of music from orchestral to cutting edge indie.  KPM is known for library music (or production music) which was born before TV but grew as TV became household items.  This created opportunity for composers and session musicians to experiment without the pressures of writing a "Hit." Library music is background music used for a variety of media sources, primarily TV, film and radio.

KPM is the most established name in library music and for the past 50 years has been a division of EMI Music Publishing, now part of Sony/ATV Music Publishing.

Warner Signs Tucker Beathard
Singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard has signed with Warner Music Nashville.  He was previously signed to Big Machine Label Group's Dot Records in 2015, where he scored the hit single, "Rock On," Beathard more recently has been recording independently, releasing the double album, "Nobody's Everything." The second chapter of that project will be released in the coming months on his new label home.

"To quote Tucker's song, when we first heard this music, it was clear that he had ‘somethin' to say,’” said WMN SVP/A&R Cris Lacy. “That’s the hallmark of a true artist. You couple that with the raw depth of his lyrics, some brilliant musicianship, and that old soul voice, and it was a no brainer. Tucker had to be part of the Warner Music family.”

“It was really important to me during this album-making process that I didn’t immediately rush into signing a record deal,” said , the son of hit Nashville songwriter Casey Beathard. “With everything I’ve learned during this journey, I wanted to be sure whenever I add a new layer into the fold it’s the right fit and that it’s always about the music. The first time I met with the team at Warner, I knew they were the right ones to help get more of my music out into the world."
