PRS going after workplace radios

New from the MySociety genii:, capsule the curiously-capitalised PlaceOpedia. Think Google Maps ? Wikipedia. Brilliant. Except that, as I write, all the links read


  1. Whilst waiting at a red light a car sidled up beside me, music blaring, and I found myself pondering whether or not he had a PRS licence. My instinct was ‘No’, but it was definitely a public performance.

  2. Hello (please find attached photo, Colins the one with the beard!!)
    After seeing all the small businesses complaining about the prs demanding money for them playing music in their premises we thought we could do something about it, so Royalty Free Music Radio was born.
    Here is a small press release you might like to feature.
    Ex-Scunthorpe brothers hit the airwaves with RFM Radio
    Brothers Colin and Gary Wilkinson now living in Wakefield and Manchester are giving hardup businesses a boost by offering an alternative to paying PRS fees for playing music on their premises in the form of Royalty Free Music Radio.
    At the moment any business playing music has to pay the PRS fees ranging from approx £80 to £1000’s depending on the size of the business. One restaurant who is now tuned in to was asked to pay £3000 a year and he only had 200 seats!!
    We only play 100% unsigned artists or bands who play their own or 3rd party Royalty free music. We have a daily expanding playlist from quality musicians who want to get their music heard and quality Djs who provide lively and entertaining shows.
    Its a totally free service for both bands and listeners and can be heard on their website at or by using a Wi-Fi radio and searching for royalty free music in the UK.
    Highly competitive advertising packages are available and the unique adaptability of the system means that larger businesses can have their own branded radio station with quality music and tailor made promotions, marketing, news, infact any information they would like to convey to staff or the listening public.
    Any business interested in the service or advertising packages/branded stations should e-mail for further information.
    Thanks Colin
