The challenge with digital music today

This quote is fantastic. It keeps me thinking that in the old days, pre Internet, the obstacle every music listener faced was not having enough money to purchase all the music they wanted to listen to. Now that everything is abundantly available online, the new challenge is no longer money but time. There isn't enough time to listen to everything so how do you make the best use of it?

We used to have D.J.’s, record store clerks and A.& R. types.... But now, because so much music is available, the challenge is surfacing relevant music to listeners.”
