“Legacy artists don’t need FM radio to promote them. They need a system that's not rigged against them.” – @RepTedDeutch. Many music legends already had, and still have, the fan base and hit singles. They just need to be paid fairly. Watch more:

Few are more familiar with the fight for fairness than @AFLCIO President @LizShuler. It’s time for radio broadcasters like @iHeartRadio to face the music. Performers deserve to be paid for their work. More from Liz in @NBCNewsTHINK: https://t.co/lta133lkb7

New forecasts from @BIAAdvisorySvcs predict local radio ad revenue will grow to $12.7B (!!!) by 2022. These stations can and must start paying artists for radio airplay. Their excuses don't stand. It's time for #musicfairness https://t.co/JSiuJl8LCg

When the #MusicModernizationAct became law 3 years ago, we took a big step toward #musicfairness. But there's still more to do. It's time to close radio's loophole & pass the American Music Fairness Act. More from @JoeCrowleyNY & music legend Sam Moore: https://t.co/rTIaXycd68

If broadcasters want to get fairness, they need to give fairness. They can’t ask to get paid when tech companies use their content, but refuse to pay artists when they use their songs. That’s hypocrisy, plain and simple — and we’re calling it out. https://t.co/CiHy4slQPQ

We’re taking the fight for fair pay for artists all the way to the FCC. Read more about our recent filing in response to the NAB’s push to allow corporate broadcasters to gobble up even more local stations: https://t.co/5FvkHTqICG

"The @NAB asks the FCC and Congress to change the rules to make sure broadcasters are compensated when others make money off their content, but won’t extend the same fairness to the artists whose music they exploit to line their pockets." – @JoeCrowleyNY https://t.co/fegcaaaAT0

New polling shows most Americans support artists and advertisers taking bold action to hold corporate radio accountable, including boycotting radio stations until corporations like @iHeartRadio start paying artists. Learn more: https://t.co/aWVaREHQHu

The bipartisan American Music Fairness Act was written specifically to protect local mom-and-pop radio stations. It's time for multi-billion-dollar corporations like @iHeartRadio to pay artists. Learn more about the legislation: https://t.co/dpfkUr4hVO #musicfairness @sagaftra

“If you put a dollar into that [busking musician’s] guitar case, you alone gave more to any singular artist than any AM/FM station has ever done in the history of AM/FM radio.” — @musicFIRST Chairman @JoeCrowleyNY on the latest podcast from @sagaftra https://t.co/dpfkUrlTko

For decades, FM/AM radio has skated by on the notion that “free promotion” of artists is enough. But as listeners move toward digital streaming platforms, this excuse has become less valid than ever. It’s time to pay artists for their work. https://t.co/pk4JKBrzhT

It’s not complicated: Refusing to pay someone for their work is unfair. Plain and simple. That’s why Americans say it’s unfair that artists are not paid for radio airplay — by a 2-to-1 margin. Learn more from @musicFIRST’s latest survey ➡️ https://t.co/IVTvIcEWeS #musicfairness
