We had ourselves a barnburner of a Sunday evening at the Lehigh Valley Music Awards. Congratulations once more to all of the deserving winners, and thanks to everyone who stopped to chat with WLVU: The Sound of The Underground on the red carpet at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks.

This Week on WLVU
After a special edition of The Quinn Spinn on Monday night that recapped Maverick da Roninn’s WLVU Summer Concert Series-opening performance, The Sound of The Underground keeps things rolling through midweek.

The Small Webcasters Agreement of 2009 expired on January 1 of this year. With that, royalty rates have skyrocketed for internet radio hosts and station owners, leaving tens of thousands of webcasters with no choice but to shutter their doors to countless talented independent musicians throughout the world.
The Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) has left small webcasters and hard-working musicians out in the cold, with no representation whatsoever. With no provisions to assist small webcasters, many will not only struggle to keep up — they will find it impossible.
The good news? A Change.org petition (containing all of the information you need) has gained steam, hoping to preserve the platforms that independent musicians of all genres hold dear. As it nears its goal of 1,500 signatures, we at Lehigh Valley Underground encourage you join this fight. Make Congress reconsider this injustice to our indie brothers and sisters by signing it today.
