Associate Member Highlight: Radio Music License Committee

Bill VelezBy: Bill Velez, Executive Director at Radio Music License Committee

I owe my job at the Radio Music License Committee (RMLC) to Michigan’s own Ed Christian of Saga Communications.

My first job out of college in 1972 entailed licensing radio stations at American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).  Ed was one of my radio accounts, and I did a favor for him at the time.  I had no idea when I approached the RMLC for a job in 2007 that Ed was the Chairman of the RMLC.

Like they say, what goes around, comes around!
