More locally produced music on Irish media sign now

There is an endless amount of musical talent in Ireland, yet what we hear on the radio is mostly mainstream American music and the occasional Irish classic. Nothing against Thin Lizzy or U2, but new acts deserve a chance too.

The aim of this petition is to request new legislation that would increase the percentage of locally produced music on Irish media, T.V and radio. In France and Canada 40\% of the music on the radio has to be local.

Such legislation will benefit the whole music industry and probably even tourism.

This will definitely benefit the radio listener.

----

We, the undersigned, would like that 40\% of music on Irish media, T.V. and radio will be locally produced.

This 40\% would be spread evenly throughout the day, including prime time.
This will include incidental and theme music, such as RTE adverts.

Half of the 40\% will be music that was published during the last year, quarter during the last 5 years and the rest from different periods.

Radio stations will introduce at least one new artist every week and no artist will be played more than 5\% (out of the 40\%). This is essential to avoid the same tracks being played over and over again while others being totally ignored.
