Recording body seeks major refund


The Recording Musicians Association of Los Angeles is demanding its parent organization, the American Federation of Musicians, refund more than $1 million dollars in work dues the local group claims it was improperly charged.

The dispute involves contracts for videogames, TV telethons, basic cable shows as well as film and television scoring. The refund demand is part of an ongoing effort by local recording musicians to secure a greater voice in AFM decisions.
