MacVoices #16132: The MacJury Contemplates Choosing and Using Streaming Music Services

The MacJury takes on the topic of streaming music with a look at what services they use, how they use them. and why. Surprisingly, streaming isn’t the only answer to their music consumption. The panel of Jeff Gamet, Kelly Guimont,  Ken Ray and host Chuck Joiner  also discuss why they still buy CDs (and it isn’t just for the music), how supporting their favorite artists factors into their choices, and their concerns about relying strictly on streaming music.

Guests:

Jeff Gamet  is the Managing Editor for  The Mac Observer, and the author of  Fresh Brewed Tales, a chronicle of Jeff’s strange adventures at coffee shops.  He also is the host of the  Daily Observations  podcast and co-host of  The Apple Context Machine. You can find his regular updates on  Twitter.  

Kelly Guimont  is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for  The Mac Observer, is co-host of  The Aftershow, makes regular appearances on the  Daily Observations Podcast  and the  British Tech Network  and yet still has more to say which she saves for  Twitter.  

Since May of 2005,  Ken Ray  has eaten, slept, and breathed Apple news and news related to Apple news in order to produce a daily Apple news show. and he does just that with  Mac OS Ken, with content that  includes most stories directly related to Apple, many stories indirectly related to Apple that stand a chance of affecting Apple’s business or its users, and tangentially related stories that are funny.A slightly skewed, sometimes cynical, obsessive look at Apple news, five-days-a-week.  Ken also produces an extra day of content in  Mac OS Ken: Day 6, a subscription show that features one-on-one interviews with fellow podcasters, industry analysts, experts and whoever Ken wants to talk to. Ken also co-hosts  Mission Log, a Roddenberry Star Trek podcast that explores the Star Trek universe one episode at a time and he has launched both  EYE Chart Magazine  and  EYE Chart Radio  as the latest in his expanding media empire.  You can connect with him on  Twitter.
