DMT 101 – Apple Radio, Spotify’s browser, Willis & Gaga

This week on Digital Music Trends Andrea Leonelli, Darren Hemmings (@mr_trick), Eliot Van Buskirk (@listeningpost) and Eamonn Forde (@eamonn_forde) discuss the digital music news of the past week.

In the show – which also includes a segment on mobile music making apps by Ashley Eldson – we talk about Apple’s radio rumours and implications, Bruce Willis and digital music inheritance, Spotify’s latest rumours, the importance of Playlists and Lady Gaga’s forthcoming album app – this and much more on this week’s Digital Music Trends.

Here a few links to the stories that we mention/talk about:
