Larry Wilcox's curator insight, August 21, 6:43 PM

Oh, WOW! This is very interesting, I never know of a such thing as "Playlist Payola". Although it's very convincing. It seems as if it is ran by a Mob or something. This seem to be a way to control artist and get them to sign on to a record and if they choose not to than there career would not go anywhere. The fact that it is stated that a host/DJ was injured because he choose one to share the information is what has me leaning toward Mob or Gang. If a artist was welling to sign with the company for exposure that would be a great was is to sign with a company that controls the air. Although if you are trying to finding your way on your won this could be a bad idea. Understanding what you want to accomplish will be the foundation/Blue Print of your succes.
