PhoneBoy Speaks Ep 909: Music Acquisition in the 1990s

I remember getting the regular mailings from BMG Music Service where I had to send the cards back to make sure I didn’t receive disks I didn’t want. Columbia House worked in much the same way, offering you a great introductory deal on music CDs, provided you agreed to buy several disks at regular, expensive prices. The funny thing is the shenanigans that went on back in the 1990s with these companies are still happening today, just with streaming music services. Bottom line: musicians are getting just as screwed today as they were in the 1990s.
