DMT 154: SFX IPO, Byrne & streaming, Rdio gets Stratos, Miley at n.1, Pandora & more…

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to welcome Incubus manager Steve Rennie (renmanmb.com / @renman1) and journalists Eliot Van Buskirk (Evolver.fm / @listeningpost) and David Downs (davidrdowns.com / @davidrdowns) for a discussion that covered SFX’s IPO on NASDAQ, David Byrne’s recent Guardian op-ed on streaming, Rdio’s Stratos documentary exclusive, iTunes being more expensive than Amazon, Miley Cyrus’ n.1 in the UK and US, Pandora’s artist stance and much more.

And you can find links to the stories we covered (and the ones we didn’t get the time to cover) here: http://bit.ly/154notes


I really hope you enjoy this week’s show, have a great week and ’till next time!
