What's the Frequency, Kerry?

Issue section:

I've just read your article 'The Beat to Beat Bush With' (October SR).

Thanks for the link to our website. However, our efforts are purely independent. Your article which says 'largely coordinated via musicforamerica.org' is not true, and sort of suggests that they are responsible for our work.

We invested many thousands of dollars of our own money and hundreds of hours of our own time to bring all the Election Day USA artists together on one CD that was distributed to college and public radio stations nationwide, and is currently receiving good airplay in swing states, blue states and even red states.

Also, the last thing we would want to do is have our music benefit a divisive candidate like Nader - he helped Bush get elected in 2000. This year, we need John Kerry to help us rid the world of Bush.
