Listened From MP3 to vinyl β€” listening to music in the 21st century, plus Archie Roach’s ARIA gongs from ABC Radio National

We’re spoilt for choice with ways to listen to music these days β€” CD, MP3, streaming, Bandcamp, vinyl, and even cassette tape. So which formats are here to stay? Plus, we celebrate Archie Roach’s ARIA Award haul this week.

Andrew, I enjoyed this conversation about the development of music technology.

I am particularly interested in the discussion of the way in which streaming services strip out context. This leads to different artists being combined as if they are the same.

In regards to the CD renaissance, I wonder about disc rot and the impact that this will have?

Disc rot is the tendency of CD or DVD or other optical discs to become unreadable because of physical or chemical deterioration. The causes include oxidation of the reflective layer, physical scuffing and abrasion of disc, reactions with contaminants, ultra-violet light damage, and de-bonding of the adhesive used to adhere the layers of the disc together.
