MacVoices #13206: Christopher Breen On Music Curation, Music Streaming and Music Listening

Macworld Senior Editor Christopher Breen goes with us on a deep dive into the subject of music. The discussion starts with music curation – automatic with Pandora, more human-based with iTunes Radio. Chris explains why he feels one is, at least for now, superior to the other, and why. From there, music distribution and appreciation, streaming vs. owning, Sonos and more all get thrown in the mix, along with a review of the online music services, and why Chris picks one over the rest.
