    Default How do you discover music? Do you still listen to the radio?

    Hey guys,

    When I take my hour long drive to work, I usually just hookup my android to the bluetooth and start playing songs I've downloaded so I don't really discover new music UNLESS someone starts singing/playing something in front of me.
    I was just wondering how you discover your music and if you still listen to the radio?

    I listen to a weekly radio program called "lost and found" think they have a podcast too. Usually find some great artists there.

    Spotify is very good streaming app for discovering new music. You should also register at last.fm. You can discover what are the popular songs, most listened artists by a lot of people.

    Primarily through review sites like this or Youtube reviewers like theneedledrop . I also use apps like soundhound and such if I come across a song in the wild that catches my fancy but I rarely listen to conventional radio as the songs I like I rarely played on it.

    I listen to about 3 or 4 hours of music radio a week. My regular morning radio talk show has a segment about arts & culture which features reviews and sampling of new music of many different types, along with reviews of plays, movies and books. Some tunes I just happen to hear in my environment, and use a music ID service to identify.

    Music is all around us. I don't think anyone can really escape discovering new music either willingly or accidentally.

    This russian music app is the best so far https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ree.zaycev.net , you can download how many songs you want for free, it's not a malware app, I use it over Google Play Music.

    The radio is on in the car and in the house but I don't really "listen" to it.

    I use the Tune In radio app..Slacker, Jango, and Spotify.

    I don't discover much new music as I'm still stuck on classic rock (primarily 80's hair metal ). I usually listen in the car via SiriusXM (ex. Classic Rewind, Ozzy's Boneyard, Hair Nation channels), but sometimes via the app (on phone and tablet) too. Also occasionally listen to a local classic rock FM radio station.

    Spotify and Last.fm are great souces of music for me, but there are others too such as Deezer, Concert Vault or 8tracks which offer a blend of types of music and ways of discovering them, and all integrated in to the Sonos app which is cool. I guess you can listen to them via your PC/ Mac also or phone, but sound quality is then lacking.

    I don't really listen to new music, but have found many previously undiscovered artists using Pandora and iHeartRadio. Just pop in an artist I know I like and they play things I never even knew existed. Granted, they may start playing Eminem while I'm listening to JoCo, but after a few thumbs down, all is right with the world again.

    The playlists that youtube makes automatically after you search for something are pretty good at finding similar things.

    That, and my friends listen to some pretty trippy stuff.

    No radio for me other than the morning. I like some of the local radio guys during the morning. Otherwise I will take some metal with my coffee!
