To anyone on this list that produces radio programming for distribution 
beyond their originating station,

I'm trying to create a series of radio specials, for broadcast 
distribution beyond KRCB, from my late father's audio taped interview 
collection, entitled "Ralph J. Gleason's Conversations." I want to 
embed in the programs complete music selections that are pertinent to 
the conversations and I want to distribute these shows to radio 
stations on CD, through KRCB.

ASCAP and BMI tell me that KRCB's blanket license doesn't cover putting 
the shows on CD and Harry Fox Agency tells me that I have to clear each 
and every song, for each and every show, with the record label, the 
artist and the publisher, in addition to clearing the mechanical rights 
through them, in order to put them on CD.

Is this true? How does anyone afford, in time or money, to produce 
radio programming that is distributed to stations on CD? Does anyone 
have any constructive ideas? I'd appreciate any advice I can get. This 
is great interview material and it would be a real shame if it never 
got heard. Please reply off the list.
