It used to be that we relied on commercial radio to hear new music by artists we like. But with stale formats and ever-more advertisements, FM radio is losing its allure. Now we can subscribe to and download podcasts or listen to millions of Internet radio stations or pay for satellite radio. Amazon and other online stores suggest artists based on what we’ve bought in the past. There are music blogs and music-swapping sites to help us even more. So how do you find out about good music? From friends? From particular websites? From commercial radio playlists? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and I’ll feature the best ones in next week’s Your Take Roundup.
