A new lobbying group fighting another performance royalty from being levied on radio stations plan its formal launch this Wednesday, Oct. 10.

The Free Radio Alliance counts NAB, NPR and several other broadcast groups as members.

On its Web site, the group states: “The Free Radio alliance has been formed to provide a united force in opposition to the recording industry’s efforts to subsidize their failing business model on the back of local radio stations and others that publicly air pre-recorded music.”

Although formed this summer, the group holds its official launch with a picnic on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington from noon-2 p.m.
