GUEST,Ewan McVicar PRS call for a Busking Day (82* d) RE: PRS call for a Busking Day 11 Jun 10


PRS / MCPS is of variable quality.
As are contributions to Mudcat threads.
From all I know, PRS does more good than harm, which is all that can best be said of most of us.
The Busking Day idea as I understand it came about when the PRS magazine people were startled at the response to some piece re busking they did, and sought to know more from their members. Remember PRS is owned by its membership, the music makers and publishers. Yes, it is dominated by the big boys - what's new in this our world?
Then the PRS PR people took over abourt busking, and in the way of PR people went right over the top. Again - news?
Like many others I have busked here and there in my time, in various places for various reasons. I was even a judge at a busking competiton in Glasgow in 1990. Now that was a piece of non-sense!
