    Whatever happened to kids who built and listen to the crystal radio kit?

    This study seems terribly incomplete-

    Where’s YouTube? Terrestrial/traditional radio? Sirius/XM? Mp3s/ipod/iphone? Soundcloud? Mixcloud? Bandcamp?

      Agreed on YT. This is the most obvious online streaming platform that was omitted.

      Seems like it got chopped off on the right side!

      I’m gonna assume that if they put YT in that chart, the rest of the it would barely register.

      A chart I would like to see is all services compared in how people DISCOVER music..

      (again I would assume that terrestrial radio and YouTube would be the top 2, but it would be interesting to see how the others compare)

    Interesting to see Pandora and iTunes in the lead. That’s a surprise.

      iTunes probably on the iPod, playing stolen music.

    I have three kids (my own polling group): 21, 18 and 16. My results would have been Youtube, Spotify and Songza with Youtube far out in front.

    I would agree Plum Radio and Mixcloud aren’t big enough yet but Songza and Milk should have been thrown in to this.
