This article goes over the impact of digital radio versus AM/FM radio. Even though digital radio listeners are increasing a great deal, AM/FM radio still has the advantage. This is because digital radio hasn't figured out how to include local advertising. AM/FM radio garners 200 million unque listeners monthly, while the most popular digital radio service, Pandora, gets about 75 million. If the digital radio services figure out a way to include local advertising, I believe AM/FM radio will be obsolete.

I chose this article because i thought it was really cool to see how pandora and spotify are in competiton with each other. With pandora having over 72.1 million listeners its hard to believe that spotify will soon exceed that.

Just How Much of Musical History Has Been Lost to History?

Just How Much of Musical History Has Been Lost to History? | music industry | Scoop.it
Valuable original recordings and rare tapes have vanished over the years—a process that Jack White and the National Recording Preservation Foundation are looking to stop.

A lot of people today rarely buy CDs because of itunes. Tapes were rarely bought when CDs came out because it was a new whole different thing.

I believe that a lot of music has been missing. Having to loose out on great music today is not surprising at all. There has been singles that artists today want to put out and just make money off of. I believe those lost recordings have been what I call a "missing art" for todays time. I think even if Mr. White find those lost recordings no one would appreciate the value in the music unless it was recorded by a popular artist that everyone knows.

Michael Hassinger's curator insight, December 11, 2013 11:40 PM

This article is about Lindsey Stirling, a youtube sensation, who generates revenue through making you tube videos. Her fanbase consisted of three million followers. The advantage of having a you tube account and having a large fan base can allow Stirling to live off of the funds. A disadvantage was going onto a popular television show and getting turned down. But later returning to you tube where her fanbase misjudged her. I think judgement comes with being in the music industry. People are going to talk about you whether you are doing good or bad.

I think people should buy more CDs than MP3s. I also think too many people download music for free.
