According to vendor sites like DirectTelevisionPackages.com, there are dozens of streaming music channels out there, but is that where all the people are going to hear the music? It seems like music, much like the times, has really undergone a kind of shift in terms of the way people experience it and seek it.
There used to be a time where vinyl record stores were packed and you went there, not only to buy records, but meet new people. Now, most of the people out there can buy their music digitally off Amazon or, worse, they will pirate it.
It’s not all Amazon’s fault, though. Apple pretty much perfected the concept of digital music libraries and digital shopping with services like iTunes. It’s way easier and much more convenient for customers to just punch in a few numbers and click a few links.
Satellite radio has also changed the face of music. You now have a much larger and wider variety of genres and channels to choose from. Most of these channels also play without any kind of commercial interruption so it’s just nothing but a constant flow of stuff you love.
There are still music stores and people still do listen to the radio, but sooner or later those will go the way of the VHS.
