Faces Of The RIAA

We’ve received a lot of requests to “expose” the RIAA for who they really are… record companies and record company executives. Our readers feel that the companies involved are hiding behind the name “RIAA,” and would like to be formally introduced to the association’s members.

At your request, we’ve put together a list of contact information and addresses for the largest of the companies, as well as pictures and some biographical information about their chief executives. This is all public information. Get to know your RIAA:
