I love music.
I love making music, and I love listening to music.
And these days, almost all of my music is digital. I rip CDs into iTunes, I download music from blogs, I watch music videos on YouTube, and I can stream online radio stations from around the world.
But digital technology hasn't just changed how many of us listen to music, it's also changed how music is written and produced.
This morning, Nora interviewed Jay Frank, the author of Futurehit.DNA: How the Digital Revolution is Changing Top 10 Song. Jay's book is all about how we listen to music now, and what effect that's having on how pop music is created. A shorter version of this interview will air on an upcoming episode of Spark, but you can hear the full, uncut interview if you download the MP3. [runs 29:09]
