EMI Group

The EMI group was accused of paying radio programmers to play specific songs. In June 2002, an EMI executive wrote in an e-mail that a song by a specific group would be played three times a day in exchange for a concert. As well, radio programmers were given free Rolling Stones concert tickets or offered cash payments for stations to play specific songs. The music giant's executives were alleged to deceive radio programmers into believing a song was popular by generating false requests for specific songs. Federal and New York state laws prohibit broadcasters from accepting payments of cash or anything of value unless the arrangement is disclosed to listeners. (Jun-16-06) [ST. LOUIS TODAY]
