Local Business Radio

Imsradio launch LBRadio

Our parent company IMSradio have just launched www.lbradio.co.uk its a website dedicated to show case our Local Business Radio idea. This allows a group of local businesses to get together and help fight back over the out of town shopping centres.

How it works is quite simple but if it wasn't for internet radio and our radio services would be a very expensive option.

So a local set of businesses signup and then can add their own adverts to their own radio station so the butchers on the High street have their adverts in the garage repair shop down the road and the garage gets his advert in the butchers on the High street etc etc. This gives the shopper informed about all the products and services available locally.!!

Not only that but general announcements can be added as "free parking on market day every Thursday" the possibilities are endless.

And of course ALL the music is Dj presented and fully PRS/PPL royalty free.

So have a look at www.lbradio.co.uk TODAY and start your own community radio station for just £10 per month/business and the first advert FREE.

Thanks Colin

Is royalty free music for business the same as prs and ppl fee free music? Well yes it is royalty free music is just another way of describing the same sort of thing, ie there are still no royalty fees to pay if royalty free music is used un your business just as if prs/ppl fee free music is played.

There are of course different types of both royalty free music and prs/ppl fee free music and they both help the user avoid paying those fees.

So tune in and enjoy your royalty free music.

PRS and PPL hitting charity shops

Individual shops will pay levy

The Government's plan to make charities pay royalties to play music will apply to each charity shop individually and could cost charities that run shops a total of more than £500,000 a year, according to the Association of Charity Shops.

The association, which represents more than 300 charities that have shops, says its members will have to pay an average of £1,800 a year if they want to continue playing music.

Earlier this month, the Government announced that it would support proposals to remove the charity exemptions from paying fees to Phonographic Performance Limited, which represents the interests of music producers and performers.

Charities already pay fees for music to the Performing Rights Society, which represents music writers, composers and publishers. Under the proposed new system they would pay one fee that would be split between the PRS and PPL.

A spokesman for PPL said that charities would be charged per shop, rather than paying a one-off fee to play music in all their shops.

He said the cost per charity shop had not been decided, but the amount was likely to be less than £100 a year. There are approximately 7,500 charity shops in the UK, according to the Association of Charity Shops.

David Moir, head of policy and public affairs at the ACS, said the association would meet spokesmen from the opposition parties and backbench MPs to urge them to pressurise the Government over the plans, which are due to come into force on 6 April 2010.

"Our members are horrified about the proposals," he said.

"The music industry already collects about £17m in royalties each year, so the amount from charity shops won't make that much difference, but it will certainly hit our shops very hard."

This is a great reason for Charity Shops to turn to Charity Shop Radio and so avoid having to pay these fees. Totally PRS/PPL fee free.
