Yeah , whether its played in a Restaurant or at a football match or on TV the PRS makes sure that the songwriter gets some sort of royalty Its quite a small amount usually, and is what sparked the whole you tube kerfuffle.
in the car, then when I got home "Home and Away" was on TV and I thought I recognised the voice of one of the characters. Indeed it's the man who interviews Juanita and Joel. His name is Axle Whitehead (his character's name is Liam Murphy).
Ahahaha - he's pretty famous over here. He was a runner-up on Australian Idol, then hosted Video Hits for about four years until he was fired for 'exposing' himself at the ARIA awards while drunk. Then he came out with a mildly successful album, and became an actor on Home and Away. It's a pretty interesting story, really.
