Just coming up for air after a few crazy weeks. Rewinding a little… Great trip to Philly. Was picked up at the train station by some wild Australian guy, claiming to be part of a local podcasting group… wound up on theBestDamnTechShow… period for a humorous, and at times completely random segment. Always great to see these kinds of groups popping up – videographer, programmer, lighting expert, radio guy, recording engineer, spontaneously forming a creative group and launching a podcast. Good luck guys…

Drew was kind enough to drive us to the UPenn bookstore for the town hall.


Headed over the UPenn for a very engaging evening with a huge crowd of local music fans. First a very hearty thanks to Ilene, Chris and Christine for the invitation, and for being such wonderful hosts. And Theodore, for all the legwork getting the word out. It makes all the difference to have such great support. And thanks for the awesome sweatshirt too! I felt compelled to pass it along to Jessica Stoner, our VP of BizDev who is a UPenn alum – she beamed!
Audience was full of musicians, reps for musicians groups, recording studio owners, small record label folks, radio DJs, entrepreneurs… the whole shootin match.

Many folks were interested in the payment situation for artists. Pandora pays a license fee (set by the DMCA) for every song that we stream. We cut really big checks every month to the various royalty collecting agencies (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SoundExchange), which then disburse it to the artists.

Hopped the last Acela back to NYC – love riding the train. And Philly’s train station is such an incredibly beautiful piece of architecture. City of brotherly love indeed….
