Entertainment Fraternity & Media await Government's recommendations
The entertainment fraternity and the media eagerly await the government’s recommendations as it relates to the direction to be taken to clean up music that is broadcast or projected in public spaces and through the electronic media.
Minister of culture with responsibility for entertainment Olivia Babsy Grange along with education minister Andrew Holness were asked to prepare for cabinet review the recommendations coming out of a meeting last Friday (13/02/09) with less than a handful of industry players and media representatives. Cabinet met yesterday (16/02/09).
During the meeting last Friday to which the government failed to invited Jamaica’s two leading stations IRIE FM and ZIP 103 FM, some of the recommendations were that producers should be held accountable for songs in breach.
But what happened to the disc jock playing the songs and the radio station? Should they be held accountable?
Anyways, keep it locked to IRIE FM for the full hundred.
All this is stemming from the Broadcasting Commission’s decision to ban all daggerin songs or songs that has bleeps, beeps or edits.
