Pandora’s first comments came from Westergren speaking at the SF Music Tech conference in San Francisco. “There are a couple artists making over $2 million on Pandora,” TechCrunch quotes Westergren as saying. “Some artists making over $100,000 a year.” Those are pretty straightforward comments.

Back in 2008 DJ Khaled paid us a surprise visit. It’s not every day we read about celebrities giving back to the community. DJ Khaled, who still has the most popular radio show in Miami (WEDR/99 Jamz) and who’s 2007 “We The Best” album reached #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart, visited our Downtown, Opa-Locka – Miami, Florida studio’s.
It would be hard to accuse DJ Khaled of forgetting his undergroud radio roots.
We were surprised to see DJ Khaled’s signature Rolls Royce Phantom pull up to our front door. DJ Khaled stayed around for interviews and questions from local aspiring independent artists and promoted his album. We still have much love for DJ Khaled but it’ s not often we get to see him. A lot has changed since 2008. Follow us on on Twitter for more updates@DadeCountyRadio

“This milestone reflects the fact that the digital music industry is evolving and will continue to grow,” said SoundExchange president Michael Huppe in a statement. “We’re optimistic about where the music industry is headed and see opportunity for SoundExchange to help both creators and digital music services thrive.”
Of the billion dollars paid out by SoundExchange over the past decade, more than one-tenth has been distributed in recent months. The organization doled out a total of $108.6 million in royalties during the first quarter of 2012, marking the first time distributions exceeded $100 million in a single quarter. SoundExchange cites enhanced data management and improved technology platforms for the change.
The U.S. Copyright Office has designated SoundExchange the sole administrative entity for collecting digital royalties, but not everyone knows that yet. Tens of millions of dollars in digital royalties still sit unclaimed, despite the organization’s best efforts to contact artists. “They think we’re a Nigerian email scam,” a spokesperson once said.
Any musician or copyright holder can sign up for SoundExchange. Anyone hoping to receive royalties must send in a W-8 or W-9 form and government-issued identification. All of this can be done via email, snail mail, or fax (more info here).
