<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
Eliot Spitzer, NY’s Attorney General has brought to light a two year investigation that exposes illegal payments from record companies to radio stations in exchange for playing certain songs. Gifts, trips, even outright cash payments for air time are illegal, called ‘payola’. Both the record companies and the radio stations are charged with wrongdoing. Payola has been illegal since the 1950’s when manipulation by the music industry to have songs played on radio was exposed.
Also, the 4th grade ballroom dancers in Queens, NY are profiled and everyone seems to come out a winner in this competition.
