Music Modernization Act

Meet Dan and Dan! Dan Reed, Music Director and Afternoon Host at WXPN/Philadelphia and Dan DeLuca, Music Critic and Columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer sit down on a bi-weekly basis to talk MUSIC! The Music Modernization Act is a bi-partisan piece of legislation that is on the path to becoming law, and it is a major potential win for singers and songwriters. Dan and Dan enlist the help of attorney Carrie Ward, owner of Ward Law Group in Philadelphia, to help break things down for us and explain why musicians should be excited. Also, Dan Reed laments over the Bob Seger farewell tour and to Dan DeLuca’s delight, Maroon 5 is playing the Super Bowl. - Tue, 25 Sep 2018 17:09 EDT
