ET Radio 4 & Licensing (61* d) RE: Radio 4 & Licensing 30 Jun 05

I am interested in the message from Guest Grab - that the form is straightforward and many licensees just havn't bothered. The form is straightforward for those used to modern ways of life and form filling but I can see issues for particular small clubs or pubs that have impromptu sessions - how do you know which day and time. Perhaps they should cover all by refering to music daily - just end it around midnight to be safer?

I don't like any of this licensing stuff for music - but we have to live in the world as it exists and if licensees can't get their act together over the one thing that is vital to their livelihoods it has to be their problem. All I am saying is that musicians ought to urge their local licensee to get his act together - as indeed "grab" seems to have done.

I have e-mailed the today programme about the misleading ministeriral statement about a tick box but I am not sure that the follow up is particularly helpful unless (unlikely) the Minister does something.
