It's my job to write the Friday Six In The Morning and, uh, it's Friday and it's 20 to five and I haven't written it yet. And now I have to go drink. So it's not going to happen. Boo me.
I'll make up for it with weekend posts, I promise*.
As you were!
I did an article on this six or seven years ago in prairie dog. With all the on-line music sources out there now, it's probably not as big a deal as it was back then, when Wal-Mart had the clout to shut artists that didn't meet its "moral" standards out of many small and mid-size retail markets. Still, the policy remains a pretty lame trampling of artistic freedom in our society. (InMusic)
