@kev @poetgrant well I have a lot of really obscure songs and artists that I don't think any streaming service would have. Also I don't want to suddenly realize that I cannot listen to someone because it's been pulled from the catalog. I also use plex for my movies and series so it's quite convenient.

I have an extensive library of ripped CDs and purchased MP3 files that I like to keep on an SD card on my phone. I listen to several music podcasts for newer music, and I subscribe to Amazon Music to check out new releases that I might want to pick up.
But I'm also one of those weirdos that prefers an audio jack and wired headphones, too. YMMV 👍🎧🎵🎶
@kev @poetgrant @tursiops Haha, yes people still do that. You know, control and ownership and all that. The streaming services are certainly convenient but a content deal going south is all it takes for your favorite band's songs to disappear in the blink of an eye. Plus that can add up pretty quickly if you have to subscribe to multiple streaming services to get what you want.
Also, some of us have a pretty through digital music collection that we've built up and curated over time.
