NPR's All Things Considered has been running a disturbing series by reporter Felix Contreras this week about what happens to jazz musicians when they age.

On Wednesday night Contreras talked with Little Jimmy Scott and others who have lost out on royalties.

This is infuriating when you consider all the record industry's non-stop whining that internet downloading (and a few years ago used CDs) hurt artists because it denies them royalties. In truth, the music industry has done more harm to artists and their royalties than downloading ever could.

Other stories in the series can be heard HERE and HERE.

The last installment is tonight. KUMN has been playing these after 6 p.m.
