indigos, lawmakers link for lpfm legislation
june 09, 2005
by tony sanders
billboard radio monitor

link: http://www.billboardradiomonitor.com/radiomonitor/news/business/leg_reg/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1000954432

the indigo girls, amy ray and emily saliers, peformed to a packedc room of about 150 congressional lawmakers, staffers and interest group representatives, gathered to hear the artists and to learn more about proposed legislation designed to expand low power fm's reach across the country and to elevate the broadcast service's status.

the proposed legislation--the community radio act of 2005--is currently only in draft form, but will be introduced by rep. louise slaughter (d-ny), in about two weeks, according to her spokesman, karl frisch.

frish told billboard radio monitor the bill will charge the fcc with using "every means available to protect the 600 [lpfm] stations currently operating" against encroachment by larger stations.

the draft language of the bill will also represent the fcc "make available as rapidly as possible the ramaining thousands of lpfm licenses for the rest of he country, and that the public's interest will be taken into account as these licenses are distributed." the draft language emphasized the importance of taking the public's interest into account, but didn't include any specifics on the subject.

thursday morning, (june 9), rep. slaughter, rep. mary bono (r-ca) and rep. jan schalowsky (d-il), spoke to the gathering in support of the legislation that slaughter said will protect lpfms from being bought out by a few "mega owners."

rep. schakowsky echoed that point when she told the crowd, "it's critical that we protect lpfm from being bought out by a few big corporations." the congresswoman also specifically raised the issue of alleged illegal trafficking in fm translator applications by three "front companies" she said made an $800,000 profit. the lawmaker called the events a "scandal" and said she was disturbed "not only" by the profit from "selling the public's spectrum, but they also sold it to people with only one point of view."

other speakers included former full-power radio broadcaster jim price, who now owns and operates southern gospel wbfc-lp (103.7) in boynton, ga. price said that, without help from legislation, his secondary-status lpfm may be forced off the air by the encroachment of a full-power fm that he says has chosen to move onto the 103.7 frequency.

other speakers include common cause president chellie pingree and jenny toomey and michael bracy from the future of music coalition.

hello again,

i hope you all are sleeping tight in your beds, and our british friends safe
as well.

when i arrived, i met another ig fan from the bbs.  we made our way into the
venue - it seemed like a very new place, although it did remind me of
theatre of the living arts in philly.  at the vault though, the stage was
set against the horizontal wall, the sound was pretty good, and there were
bar tables and chairs surround the dance floor, and also in the balcony
(similar to house of blues).

on my way out of the restroom, i recognized sulli and said, "hey sulli!",
and she shook my hand.  *laugh* i said something about newport (folk
festival) 1999, then let her go.

girlyman had a similar set to last night, so writing it down was easy.

during the break, ?theresa and sulli were running around the stage checking

flanked by two large screens--for optimal viewing pleasure. ;)

power of two was dedicated to chris and donna.  someone told me that amy
almost fell when she was leaning to one side during a song.  on perfect
world, amy forgot the lyrics to the last verse and the audience helped her
out.  she smiled and joined in.  there were many sing-along songs tonight.
world falls was requested for someone, and they put it on the setlist a day
early!  it was so wonderful to hear.  (that song and dead man's hill are
among my top five from amy.)

dancing, dancing.  since i was on the floor, it was a little easier to do
than last night.  last night, a couple of drunk people were talking very
loudly during finlandia, but the crowd was better today.

i had seen vonda standing in sulli's corner of technology, but her face
didn't register until amy started saying, "we have a very special guest
tonight--she lives in l.a." nate had taken away tai's large bongo-like drum
that was in front of the yamaha keyboard.  (i actually was watching ally
mcbeal--old tv show--before i became an ig fan, so later when i saw the
austin city limits repeat, i was thrilled.)

on winthrop, emily was playing the introduction on the piano, and she said,
"fucked it up already--" and started over.  that is such a sweet song.

when amy played driver education, i thought, "hey--she debuted that song at
san diego last year."

closer to fine - nate again stepped up to the plate and whistled the piccolo
part, and vonda sang the last verse.

after the show, i took a look at the setlist, and they didn't change
anything during the show in terms of songs.  i got handed a bottle of water,
but i gave it away to a thirstier person.  then met and re-met fans from the
bbs.

i stayed by their bus afterwards, and about 20-ish people were there--also
loitering ;o)  we saw girlyman help pack their stuff away in the red van.
then someone had their guitar, so most of the group sang closer to fine,
shame on you, ghost, and others.  amy ray walked down the sidewalk near the
parking garage, and i had her sign my "indigo girls" cd.  then a couple of
minutes later, emily came up the ramp from the other side.  i noticed her
and she signed the cd cover.  she looked so summery in her light green shirt
and shorts; and beige jacket.  she had worn red shirts over blue jeans
earlier that evening, and i got to see the leather bracelet with green gem
up close.

they finished up posing for pictures, signing a guitar, t-shirts, cds, then
headed out.

have fun in reno!

diane- we seem to always be at the same concerts, but i don't think we've ever met.

anyway, i just wanted to add that the vault show was really amazing. some annoying stuff with security guys not comprehending the intensity of ig fan devotion at the begining though... i don't know about anyone else, but i thought ig was much more 'on' for the vault than for san diego maybe in part because a lot of the san diego audience was more interested in getting smashed than listening--rich chick next to me had like 8 beers just during the show. there was some amazing energy between emily and vonda--emily was just beaming the whole time vonda was on stage. we waited by the bus too, although over by sulli, not by the enormous singing group--that was a little much for me. i think amy looked a little overwelmed when she came out but she was sweet, i asked her if she remembered me and she said "of course i do," mentioned something we'd talked about when i spoke to her in sf in may. we left before emily came out cause it was freezing, kind of a mob scene, and i had to be at
work early.
that's about all. i'm really loving gm, probably my favorite of the ig openers to which i've been subjected over the years. oh, and did anyone else think amy looked like she was dressed to go boating in san diego? major change from the look of her solo shows.
that's all. we're going to at least one of the northern cali shows this weekend.

thank you scott, that is so kind.  i don't live in london now, but i enjoyed
a misspent youth there, was married there, my children are london-born, i
have friends there, i visit frequently - it's still my city.  i don't have
the words to describe my feelings about the beings who plan and carry out
terrorist attacks, here or anywhere in the world, but i refuse to live my
life in fear of them.  i will be in london again soon!

indigo girls bring "rarities" to napa

by andrea garcia
fairfield - maybe it's time to enjoy the "b" side of life.

grammy-award winning duo the indigo girls are back with their latest
album, "rarities," a collection of never-released demos, hard-to-find
covers and some other compilations that never quite made the popular
radio play.

the 18 tracks were selected by singers/songwriters/guitarists amy ray
and emily saliers and features covers by rod stewart and the clash as
well as appearances by ani difranco and tom morello.

the american folk-rock duo, who will be performing at the napa valley
opera house at 8 p.m. wednesday, began their musical journey more than
two decades ago in athens, ga., and are both musically and politically
active. among others, they have championed the causes of the
environment, gay rights and the rights of native americans.

ray, who doesn't seem to mind the back-to-back concert dates, takes
some time before their gig in long beach to discuss their 15th album,
"rarities," her inspirations and a smidgen of her personal life.

how did the "rarities" album come together?

actually, sony epic record label wanted us to do one more release on
our contract. we wanted something that would be more retrospective and
for the fans. first we contacted our fans through our e-mail list and
made a list of what they said. we listened to a bunch of tapes and cds
and recordings of our shows, things that were not out in records, and
we picked what we liked.

is there a track you wanted that didn't make the cut?

not really. it's really geared towards things you couldn't get
elsewhere, that was the focus, almost the theme.

"let me go easy," is a track recorded last year but is on this album.

it's a live version of the song, a song that we recorded for our last
record, but the production wasn't right, the arrangement wasn't right
and we took it off. i brought it back in a different arrangement, more
original, more simple.

the song has a special meaning for you, right?

it's about a friend. she was a great person, a friend of the activist
community, a native american who worked on to honor the earth. we
visited a couple of times during the final stages and these were just
thoughts and i wrote a song. at some point i felt she was tired of
fighting (had ovarian cancer). she had been a strong warrior for so
many causes and at some point someone has got to be allowed to leave.

the clash is an inspiration to you?

definitely, both politically and musically. we both love them and that
song ("clampdown") really, to me, lends itself to an acoustic
arrangements. all their songs are so musical you can do them a lot of
ways.

you seem to have a crazy touring schedule.

it's not that bad because we don't normally do this, although we tour
a lot. as your career changes - we're not as big as we were - we just
don't want to overplay some areas.

do you prefer smaller venues?

i do better at smaller venues. but if you play at a big place, like
the greek theatre in berkeley, no doubt that's one of my favorite
venues, you can get an intimate venue and have it sound good. but most
large venues are not as good. i've always been comfortable in smaller
venues. in front of 8,000 people, i just get so nervous now, i didn't
used to before. things changed.

another record in the future?

yeah, we're talking about timing, when we'll have our songs finished.
maybe late winter or early spring.

are you going back to your solo career? (released two solo albums).

i'll do a solo tour in october, then emily and i will tour together in
january.

is it difficult for two women to work together all these years?

it's fine, we've been together since 1980 when we started in high
school. anyone who works together this long, regardless of gender,
become like family. you don't really hang out together except for
certain times during the year . . . we're really like sisters but it
doesn't feel like what people think of, like a circle of friends that
are so emotionally tied. the gender thing isn't happening anymore.

what's your opinion about the new breed of singers?

in general with music, i tend to stay away from the corporate music. i
tend to look at the stuff that has real substance. i like usher and
the black eyed peas and there are some r&b artists that are undeniable
geniuses.

in any era, there will be pop music that's contrived. i used to love
the partridge family! and that was corporate.

do you ever have family or friends request that you play for them?

yeah, it happens but it's rare now. my mom will ask me to play a song
that she hasn't heard for a while if the grandkids are there and i
don't mind that. but sometimes i'll have a distant relative ask me to
do a party and i just say no. that's not what music is for. but when
it's with my friends, and we're all around a bonfire, we sing and play
the guitar.

who is amy?

i have no idea. i can't articulate who i am.

would you like to add anything?

we have a great opening band called the girlie man, a three-part
harmony, acoustic trio. they're amazing and fun. it's a great show and
people might like that they stopped by early.

reach andrea garcia at 427-6935 or agarcia@dailyrepublic.net.

indigo girls bring "rarities" to napa

by andrea garcia
fairfield - maybe it's time to enjoy the "b" side of life.

grammy-award winning duo the indigo girls are back with their latest
album, "rarities," a collection of never-released demos, hard-to-find
covers and some other compilations that never quite made the popular
radio play.

the 18 tracks were selected by singers/songwriters/guitarists amy ray
and emily saliers and features covers by rod stewart and the clash as
well as appearances by ani difranco and tom morello.

the american folk-rock duo, who will be performing at the napa valley
opera house at 8 p.m. wednesday, began their musical journey more than
two decades ago in athens, ga., and are both musically and politically
active. among others, they have championed the causes of the
environment, gay rights and the rights of native americans.

ray, who doesn't seem to mind the back-to-back concert dates, takes
some time before their gig in long beach to discuss their 15th album,
"rarities," her inspirations and a smidgen of her personal life.

how did the "rarities" album come together?

actually, sony epic record label wanted us to do one more release on
our contract. we wanted something that would be more retrospective and
for the fans. first we contacted our fans through our e-mail list and
made a list of what they said. we listened to a bunch of tapes and cds
and recordings of our shows, things that were not out in records, and
we picked what we liked.

is there a track you wanted that didn't make the cut?

not really. it's really geared towards things you couldn't get
elsewhere, that was the focus, almost the theme.

"let me go easy," is a track recorded last year but is on this album.

it's a live version of the song, a song that we recorded for our last
record, but the production wasn't right, the arrangement wasn't right
and we took it off. i brought it back in a different arrangement, more
original, more simple.

the song has a special meaning for you, right?

it's about a friend. she was a great person, a friend of the activist
community, a native american who worked on to honor the earth. we
visited a couple of times during the final stages and these were just
thoughts and i wrote a song. at some point i felt she was tired of
fighting (had ovarian cancer). she had been a strong warrior for so
many causes and at some point someone has got to be allowed to leave.

the clash is an inspiration to you?

definitely, both politically and musically. we both love them and that
song ("clampdown") really, to me, lends itself to an acoustic
arrangements. all their songs are so musical you can do them a lot of
ways.

you seem to have a crazy touring schedule.

it's not that bad because we don't normally do this, although we tour
a lot. as your career changes - we're not as big as we were - we just
don't want to overplay some areas.

do you prefer smaller venues?

i do better at smaller venues. but if you play at a big place, like
the greek theatre in berkeley, no doubt that's one of my favorite
venues, you can get an intimate venue and have it sound good. but most
large venues are not as good. i've always been comfortable in smaller
venues. in front of 8,000 people, i just get so nervous now, i didn't
used to before. things changed.

another record in the future?

yeah, we're talking about timing, when we'll have our songs finished.
maybe late winter or early spring.

are you going back to your solo career? (released two solo albums).

i'll do a solo tour in october, then emily and i will tour together in
january.

is it difficult for two women to work together all these years?

it's fine, we've been together since 1980 when we started in high
school. anyone who works together this long, regardless of gender,
become like family. you don't really hang out together except for
certain times during the year . . . we're really like sisters but it
doesn't feel like what people think of, like a circle of friends that
are so emotionally tied. the gender thing isn't happening anymore.

what's your opinion about the new breed of singers?

in general with music, i tend to stay away from the corporate music. i
tend to look at the stuff that has real substance. i like usher and
the black eyed peas and there are some r&b artists that are undeniable
geniuses.

in any era, there will be pop music that's contrived. i used to love
the partridge family! and that was corporate.

do you ever have family or friends request that you play for them?

yeah, it happens but it's rare now. my mom will ask me to play a song
that she hasn't heard for a while if the grandkids are there and i
don't mind that. but sometimes i'll have a distant relative ask me to
do a party and i just say no. that's not what music is for. but when
it's with my friends, and we're all around a bonfire, we sing and play
the guitar.

who is amy?

i have no idea. i can't articulate who i am.

would you like to add anything?

we have a great opening band called the girlie man, a three-part
harmony, acoustic trio. they're amazing and fun. it's a great show and
people might like that they stopped by early.

is that get it on cd or as an album? if i could get one out of print album
on cd it would be buckingham nicks. it's the album stevie nicks and lindsey
buckingham made before joining fleetwood mac.

if i could get one out of print album in general, i'd want an original
pressing of jethro tull's thick as a brick, with the fold-out newspaper.

cheers,

a lot of the albums that you guys seek could probably be found on gemm.com

the buckingham nicks self-titled album can be found there for 14 bucks:

http://www.gemm.com/c/search.pl?currency=us&field=artist+or+title&wild=buckingham+nicks

as for me i wish i had out of print stuff like this 45 from john english iii:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/ebayisapi.dll?viewitem&item=4746487066&category=306&rd=1

if so, i would sell it on ebay and buy a ton of oop reggae.

cheers-
todd
