This Week in Music With Ian Rogers: Future of Music Coalition's Kristin Thomson

In the 12th episode of This Week In Music, Ian Rogers sits down with Future of Music Coalition's Kristin Thomson to talk about FMC's initiatives. Future of Music Coalition is a national nonprofit organization that works to ensure a diverse musical culture where artists flourish and are compensated fairly for their work and where fans can find the music they want. FOMC started in 2000.

Thomson, who played in a band herself, talks about going from being in a band to sitting with policy makers. "It was fascinating. We were 5 miles from the FCC headquarters but we never really thought about musicians having a stake," Thomson says. "We would never think about being played on commercial radio; it never seemed possible because it seemed like that was just the world of major label artists."
