Radio Battle Heats Up – Protests and Public Meeting Planned

Protestors are expected to show up Saturday at a town hall meeting organized by U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee.

The Congresswoman and several artists will give their perspective on H.R. 848.

If you listen to certain radio stations, including those in Houston that are owned by Washington D.C. based Radio One, then you have heard all of the attacks on Congresswoman Jackson Lee and  Represenative John Conyers (D-MIchigan).

Station owners claim that the elected leaders support of a plan to pay fees to artists could bankrupt their businesses and force them off the airwaves.
