goodbye, 8tracks

Posted on Tuesday 30 May 2017

I’ve started a project of daily music selections on Twitter at #hearsaysongoftheday.

Whenever there is a new music streaming service that starts up, the first thing I wax philosophic about is how the character of hand-crafted music selections is lost when music is selected by algorithm. In addition to self-motivated discovery, I grew up in a time where I could listen to radio stations like WFMU, WKCR, and WFUV. I could get the sense of the personality of each DJ, understand where I stood next to their music tastes, and let their selections transform my own tastes.
