Folks: You know that we at SALSA have a significant interest in tech as well as medicine. You also may know that it extends to music. As I hit the “radio” button on our latest Spotify playlist this morning, I imagined a time when a record label or individual artist might be able to pay more to get his or her song of choice to appear next in my streaming queue. Many of us remember– or have parents that remember– the bad old days of payola – – where a label could pay to play songs on relatively few radio stations with very high market penetration.
Will the music industry morph into neo-Payola– but with virtual DJs– and is that OK? Alan Freed to Al/go/rhythm @soundopinions @allsongs
