Birthday in Athens

Published on Wednesday 31 May 2023

Many thanks for all the birthday greetings yesterday. For my birthday present this year I’d like the music industry to finally sort out its data problems so that songwriters can be paid properly. Which is a big ask I realise. I should probably just take the wonderful two days I had in Athens and be happy with that. Though the metadata code just signed by the UK music industry is a step – albeit very much a small step – in the right direction. Let’s see where we are next time I’m eating birthday cake! Here’s my report on that metadata code.
