Smokie + iPod shuffle = Stereo Story

Smokie Dawson returns to his iPod shuffle after giving up on streaming and finds that, through some technogical osmosis (personalised algorithms?) your favourite songs always look after you.

The immediacy of streaming could never quite replace the satisfaction of buying, owning, and holding music in my hands. And the streaming service’s omnipresent “Daily Mix” – chosen especially for me – was not so much spookily playful as downright nefarious, with the accompanying emails bordering on harassment.

Put your interweb into shuffle and visit our stable mate Stereo Stories.
