WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Jenny Toomey, Director of Internet Rights at the Ford Foundation. Aside from a bit about the Ford Foundation and what Jenny does there, we talked about her work in the 1990s with Simple Machines, a DIY record label, and how that experience led her to her current work with Ford.

Hi FMA'ers of the musical type!

If you are a musician, remixer, or audio producer, you might have some questions about how to use Creative Commons licenses and works that use them. Have no fear! Eric Steuer and Cheyenne Hohman will guide you through the basics of using CC-licensed work for music. We'll also have time for Q&A after. 

The webinar will be broadcast live on the web, via our YouTube Channel, on Thursday, March 19th at 4 p.m. Eastern. 

Special guest and Creative Commons expert Eric Steuer will be co-hosting with Cheyenne. We'll show you around the Free Music Archive (including where to find license information), run through the basics of Creative Commons licenses and how to use CC tracks in various multimedia contexts, and show you how you can license your work under Creative Commons (spoiler: it's easy!).
