Young music listener"Ninety percent of my friends stream music. To be honest, I haven't seen someone use iTunes in a really long time... The last time I bought a CD was probably in middle school, and I can't even remember what it was."

So said Sean Wilson, a 21-year-old resident of Atlanta, Georgia. He's one of the examples of what CNN calls "a looming sea change for the music industry," in which "more and more [college-age music fans] are choosing to stream music instead of downloading it."

"If I could reliably stream music for free to all of my portable devices I would use streaming sites exclusively," a 23-year-old said. Evolver.fm's Eliot Van Buskirk told CNN, "There is a certain relief with not having to own music. It is a lot of work."

CNN ponders (here), "the growth of music apps, online radio channels, and music-streaming platforms raise an even larger question: Do we really need to 'own' music anymore?"
