How Streaming Music Redefined an Industry

Dec 20, 2016

  The way we listen to music has been changing for years: iPods replaced Walkmans, playlists replaced albums, and streaming services replaced shopping for music altogether. And as our listening habits have changed, so has the business of being a musician.

Top artists fight for shrinking revenues while a flood of indie bands vie for new fans; record labels fight to stay relevant while big name producers perfect the science of creating hits.  This hour, we speak with musicians and industry experts about the present and future of music in the digital age.
