This seems familiar…

This is posted as “Important” on the Singing News website:

Effective Midnight, December 31, 2007, certain areas of the Singing News website will be restricted to subscribers only.

I believe the Singing News tried this before (once or twice), but I don’t recall it ever sticking very long.

Our subscription to the Singing News ran out months and months ago and we never renewed, and honestly, I haven’t missed it. Press releases and news are all over the place before they see print, I get concert info from artists’ websites and booking agencies, and I’ve been viewing the Top 80 chart online. The only things in the magazine at the moment that I really would like to read are David Bruce Murray’s CD reviews and Ed O’Neal’s article. With the chart more than likely going behind the subscriber’s curtain, we’ll have to give serious consideration to subscribing, which I’m sure is their goal with this decision.
