News:Grammy-nominated DJ Zane Lowe leaving flagship BBC Radio show, joining Apple
Grammy-nominated DJ Zane Lowe leaving flagship BBC Radio show, joining Apple: "Zane Lowe, who has helmed BBC Radio 1's widely-praised evening show since 2003, will sign off on March 5, according to the BBC. Lowe is known as a musical tastemaker and is credited with jumpstarting the careers of artists like Adele and Gnarls Barkley by featuring them on his show."
More signs that Apple is reorienting around changes in music listening behavior. Personally, I have no interest in streaming services. In theory, I like Neil Young's hi fidelity sample player concept. Apple could use ALAC at 192kHz and 24-bit. 16 bit aac is fine for a radio experience, but I don't agree that you can't hear the artifacts.
