Doug Adams and Kirk McElhearn, the hosts of The Next Trackdiscuss Amazon’s decision to discontinue uploading of tracks to their music services, how that affects their appeal as a music service, and how the priorities of Amazon may differ from other music services. That leads to a conversation about how these two experts manage their music libraries, where streaming fits into the picture, and how music consumption has and continues to evolve.
