In response to "Christmas Spirit Wearing Thin" (Pop Eye, Nov. 26), there is a less cynical point of view that must be stated in defense of radio as well as the artists that participate in radio events. Bush, which is signed to Trauma/Interscope Records, has performed in over 45 radio-sponsored events in 1995. The experience has been a beneficial partnership. Radio benefits from the artist's performance . . . the band benefits from the exposure . . . fans are rewarded with some of the most exciting concerts of the year . . . and, most importantly, these events raise awareness and resources for local charities in each market.

Michael's special concert Sunday night at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre raised more than $500,000 for the seven Adam Walsh Child Resource Centers.

Ask anyone in the music industry what made Gary Gersh a star when he was a Geffen Records executive and you'll get the same answer: He signed Nirvana. Now Gersh is hoping he'll also be known as the man who signed the Foo Fighters. That's the band fronted by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl--and Gersh, now president of Capitol Records, is apparently the winner in a spirited competition to sign the group.
