Would teens have CDs for music at a party at someone's house? If not, then what?   :partytime

I agree with J-Bert. My kids love it, but they want to play their own music. The other kids will sometimes ask if they can play their music, too.

Everyone uses PANDORA now.

For anyone who is interested in knowing, SPOTIFY is better!

I think I'll just mention that there's music, and nevermind how it came about!   :lol2

Fwiw, a playlist burned to an mp3 player might be more common for kids who can't afford iPods.

I do hear Pandora a lot - and yes, I love Spotify, too, but all the kids I know use Pandora instead.

Assuming your book is accepted for publication TODAY, you're 2.5-3 years away from release date. Life will change. I predict that a lot of kids, maybe most, will rely on their smart phones for mp3 duties. The iPhone is already an iPod + phone.

I'm not sure if the Spotify fans had phones in mind, or if they were referring to the computer versions. Streaming will certainly get more popular also, online and on your phone.

I can easily imagine a "purist" character complaining that CDs have better sound quality. It's only partly true, since modern music is engineered with the compressed format in mind.
