How do people find out about new music?

I still listen to FM radio during my daily commute.

This is what Shazam is for. And for when you hear something you like on TV.

It doesn’t always work, though. The last The Equalizer show had a song on it that a lot of people want to get their hands on, and every website I’ve gone to that tries to figure out what the song title/artist is has been reporting that Shazam hasn’t been able to identify it. Yet. I’m one of the people who wants that song.

I listen to a local college radio station to stay hip with what the cool cats are grooving to. I don’t get Top 40 stuff from there, but that’s not the kind of music I’m into anyway. I listen in the car and over my smart speaker at home and discover all kinds of great new stuff.

Bingo. His complaint had merit 20 years ago. It’s not really relevant now.

And sometimes misidentifies songs. But I’ve found plenty of songs using it.
