      I'll occasionally run across a program like "Later With Jools Holland" or maybe "Live at Daryl's House" on MTV. Both feature more casual performances that sometimes result in something i would never have heard (or seen) and I like that.

      How do you discover new music?

      I have Apple Music, so I use that all the time. I also find YouTube to be a really good resource for finding good music. What kind of music do you like the most?

      Through my kids, friends or by listening to college or Sirius satellite radio.

      My kids. You tube random selections. Advrider what are your listening to thread. Sirius/xm deep tracks has turned me on to some old bands I never heard of. My favorite would be the advrider WTF thread. Lots of stuff gets posted there that is actually quite interesting.

      Spotify playlists are great. I’ve passively discovered more music there then anywhere else. By discover I mean they curate and I listen.

      I use Spotify also, but I find their picks a bit redundant and sometimes stale for Hip Hop. My daily mixes don’t get updated with new channels that I listen to - like Discover Weekly, etc.

      I browse Freegal. It's a music streaming and download service for libraries. The local library's plan allows each patron 3 hours streaming per day and 5 downloads per week. The interface has been pretty obtuse so I make time to flounder around. The local library director says they're rolling out an all-new interface soon.

      True, i'll also admit that there are definitely songs I LOVE and have no idea who the artist is.

      What Spotify playlists do you like for Hip Hop?

      Spotify and others like it are great ways to hear new stuff too. I usually need to keep something around to tell me what's playing if I like it.

      I kinda like the MTV stuff because you're likely to hear several songs or maybe even a whole concert. Like tonight, David Gilmour's concert at Royal Albert Hall is playing. Being a Pink Floyd fan, it's a great listen. Plus, Graham Nash and David Crosby are guest performers.

      I never knew Gilmour had received a lifetime ban from the venue after a concert in 1969...it didn't last long, just 8 months.
