Three tales from the music biz.
It's been a strange week for old fogeys who used to go to the record store to get their music.
And today, Bruce Springsteen is providing free downloads of the title track from his upcoming album, Working on a Dream (today only). The first step toward making a pile of money with an album, now appears to be giving away a piece of it for free.
Music marketing clearly has come a long way from the days when a record company would just pay a disc jockey to play its junk.
Thanks Bob! This old fogey appreciates the free Bruce download tip. Pardon me while I blow off my vinyl. I can only hope that the next generation will truly discard the "its all about money"...and make a lot of their own music. Which I'm sure I won't like, but if they do, that's all that counts.
I was listening to NPR yesterday around 3:30pm or so and a fellow came on to discuss various audio systems available for the home that are wireless--connecting to your computer. He listed a few price ranges and systems, and stated where on this site I can read about this; however, I cannot for the life of me locate the section or page he mentioned. Any help on this? thanks so much.
