The Give The Gift Of Music web site was launched on November 1, 2010, by NARM, the music business association, and the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA), along with a number of supporting entertainment industry organizations, as a vehicle for music fans to discover great gift-giving ideas, create a music wish list, and to hear today’s top artists share their favorite gifting memories.
