Clear channel even crazier than I thought  Reply with quote  

Ok weve had t he discussions about Clear Channel owning thae radio stations the venues. But I coouldnt believe this morning when I go on nexxticketing.com and find out that they are owned by Clear channel as well. How on earth is this allowed. So say they own the radio station the ticketing agency and the venue. Ok they dont like your band? oh guess what, screwed. Whats next will they own bands as well?

I don't have time to look for the link right now, but i am pretty sure that Clear Channel has started a management company as well. So, to answer your question, yes.

Anybody knows if they are planning to expand to Europe?

If they are, I will stand on the shoreline with large stick and shout "YOU SHALL NOT PASS."

Holy shit, I just did a quick google search. And fuck. You're right. I was WELL late with the whole stick thing. I'm sat here thinking this wasn't effecting here yet but they're spreading like a virus. This is very bad.

Make sure you consult the Book of Armaments if they taunt you.

One of my good friends husbands just got a job selling advertising space on Clear Channel blillboards and he laughed when I told him about the FCC tour. Maybe having a man on the inside could be to our advantage. Hmmmmm...............

I believe that is what was said word for word during intermissions on FCC tour by.... Jello? It sounded like Moore's content, but not his speaking voice, I dunno.

I just got back from Paris, and I saw a Clear Channel infestation just begining to take hold. They were installing some fiber optic cable, I don't know what for, but their filthy logo was everywhere. They've also just bought out another radio station in VT.

A good source on this stuff is my dawg Bernie Sanders, the only independant Rep. in the house, from VT. It's one of his biggest issues. For Vermonters, he holds town meetings and other such things in the legislative off-season, and at least one of them is bound to be on this issue. It's a good way to get informed. Last time he had one of the FCC commisioners with him, it was right before Powell shoved through all that deregulation.
