Congressman John Hall Speaks Up for Local Media
US Congressman John Hall was the lead singer in the group Orleans, whose hit, Dance with Me, has been recorded by many other bands. This is from his web site: John has been around the music world, from writing and directing music on Broadway to touring with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, from producing Bonnie Raitt's third album to writing the smash Orleans hit "Still The One."
John Hall testified at a meeting about local media held at the FDR Center in Hyde Park, NY in 2006. Also present were local media activist Andi Novick, Congressman Maurice Hinchey and FCC Commissioner Michael Copps.
