The streaming is sort of like those burned playlists that my daughter would make for me. I especially like to listen to compilations. For example, this morning I enjoyed listening to a playlist called Singer/Songwriter Today. Also, I had heard a blues singer, Susan Tedeschi and have one of her songs on a Putumayo compilation that I have, but I never listened to her at length until today. I realized that the way to be okay with enjoying the streaming service is to buy the songs that I like. Buying songs and albums pays artists more than streaming their music does, still not enough, but better. Though money is tight, music is important, and it is my small way of supporting the artists who bring it to the world. So I'm giving myself a gift today.
