This blog, written by Andrew Collins, couldn’t have come at a more apt moment.
It talks about people being exploited in the media industry, being asked to provide their services for free.
I know you will find it interesting. It is a tough one… it is no surprise that the Vocal Booth Weekender was built on DJs playing for free, it still has a massive contingent of DJs that come and play for no money at all. Are you one of them ?
I have been asked 4 times recently to do radio shows for people, as soon as I’ve asked for some kind of money the talks fell down, only this morning I have been approached to do another radio show. I don’t get paid for doing the Vocal Booth Radio Show (as such.. I guess it could be seen as promotion for the VBW) but that’s my choosing.
Anyway, I could ramble on.
Andrew Collins explains it better than I would. Read my comment at the bottom and feel free to come back here and comment (please).
