More licensing? DwD on NPR

I turned on the radio the other day, and the tuner was on NPR. During a cutaway from a news segment (probably "All Things Considered"), the beginning of "Dinner with Delores" started playing.

Just instrumental bumper music, no lyrics, lasted about 5-10 seconds.


Assuming we'll hear more of this as time goes by.

WHAT? A radio station playing music?!!?! What the fuck is the world coming to?! They're ruining his legacy, actually playing his music on the radio!!!!

No permission needed from PPK licensing, a snippet or interstitial that short is all under fair use.

I’ve never heard Prince bumper music on NPR. Ever.

Are you this much of a d*ick in RL too?

LOL You should take a moment out of your day riding my jock and look up the word 'sarcasm'. It'll not only teach you a new word to expand your limited vocabulary, but it will also relieve you of massive amounts of stress in thinking people are dicks in real life.

But by your rules, a dick is someone who spends time on the Org, so what does that make you, son?

They do have to pay to use bumper music on tv, but I don't think so on radio. There it should be part of their ascap/bmi licensing.

In the early 90s I worked at the local NBC affiliate. The bumpers they used were from licensed library music to avoid such things. While there, I made a few bumpers from some Madhouse tracks, and used them, and never told anybody.... Aw, snap! I'm in trouble now. biggrin

I think the part that has everyone amazed is that it's on NPR, not radio in general. Actually, I think NPR makes more sense than a commercial radio station for some reason.

I think it's neat and a clever way to reach a new and in this case thoughtful audience versus trying to impact teenagers like most commercial radio. As an amateur DJ, I find it challenging/frustrating that some of his tunes are so intricate that a respectable loop can be tough. They say most modern pop music is build upon 5 seconds of impact because that is how long it takes the listener to decide to change the station. Prince is all over almost every second of each tune so much that a little clip to a trained/xperienced ear could be very distracting and unexpected, kinda like when you hear a post-WB single at the drug store for instance. A riff like DwD is very inviting, I imagine someone was Shazamming to find out what it is. Teach the children ya know? cool lol

So is the surprise more that NPR isn't local? The local news people here in NY pick some super random stuff, there is this older fella Ernie here in NYC that does local news and has his tune for the day, it's entertaining because one day it's Sinatra, the next it's Common 'The Light', then it's like a 10,000 Maniacs 80s album cut, not even a single. Just a few seconds I think is not breaking any laws, I always wondered why it seems the rules are meant to basically obstruct music from being heard. Often due to money it won't make, from not being heard.

It left me wondering whether, perhaps, there is an entire suite of music that can be used for similar purposes available in some sort of a block license.

I also found it interesting it was a WBR release.

UK based tv show ‘homes under the hammer’ used a Madhouse track as incidental music recently. Which was nice.
