The Music Industry is Worried About Its Future and Should Be - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 10/12/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors)

Yahoo reports that Apple music executive Jimmy Iovine is scared for the future of the music industry, and he should be. He’s not a big fan of free music services that provides free tunes with ads, because it’s making the industry lose money because listeners are using these services over paying for music. As I said before, streaming is the future.  If the music industry wants people to pay for their music, maybe they should start making music that’s worth buying. Have you heard top 40 radio lately? Most of it is terrible music, lyrically and musically. It’s worth the price people are paying, which is nothing. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
