People don't listen to the radio or buy CD's and mostly listen to music on computers now. Or so we think. Actually, a new Nielsen study (quoted in Billboard) says that's bullshit. Young people are even buying CD's and listening them much more than iPods. All of which doesn't necessarily mean good news as the market for physical product is still shrinking. But it's nice to have a reality check like this every now and then about the state of the biz to correct some misconceptions.
