Radio Isn’t Dead

What I find most fascinating about this survey is just how popular radio-style music services are. Of the ten most popular services, just four allow the user to specifically select what they’d like to listen to; the remainder are largely pre-decided, with minimal user input. Even though some reports pegged iTunes Radio as a miss, this strategy seems to be working. Even though “Apple engineers involved with [iTunes] often preferred to use Spotify and Pandora”, it seems that loads of people use iTunes Radio regularly.
