I wonder whether there could be a Music Business Channel on one of the music streaming services.
You'd use it to deliberately keep in touch with what's happening in the music sphere, in some kind of efficient and organized manner. There would be a daily two or three hour cycle in which the top 40 of whatever genre are played, with announcements for each track so you'd know what you're listening to. The service would also play bubbling tracks, so if an artist wasn't high on the charts but had a spurt of adds or a jump in sales or number of plays or a lot of chat it would be recognized.
I think that I'd be interested in that. We all like to think that we listen to "good music" regardless of sales but sometimes you just want to know what's going on.
