Download Services Should Turn To Golden Oldies
from the well,-look-at-that dept
Despite the conventional music industry wisdom that everyone using file sharing services are evil pirating teenagers, a new study (done by the music industry themselves) has found that there are just as many people over the age of 45 downloading music as there are teenagers. The people who put together the study were surprised. The simple fact, is that the music industry decided long ago that their target market was teens, and those over 40 clearly had no more interest in music – so they’ve been ignoring them. Now, downloading has given the music industry insight into a mostly untapped market that they’ll try to exploit (of course). Isn’t it funny that all that “illegal activity” has actually opened up a brand new market for the industry? Of course, they won’t look at it that way…

Yep, mama’s got a squeezebox, papa doesn’t sleep at night, even when papa & mama are geezers
Re: download golden oldies
Us old geezers have already purchased the album on vinyl, 8-track, cassette and CD which have been lost or damage over the years.
No Subject Given
Duh to the music industry. The only songs I’ve down loaded are ‘golden oldies’ that the music industry hasn’t seen fit to release on CD. Somewhere someone was kind enough to convert their old format (8-track/vinyl/cassette) media to digital and make it available for me to hear.
