Digging into Nielsen's Canadian music consumption data from 2017
This week, in our first episode of 2018, we look back at the past year with Paul Shaver, the head of Nielsen Music Canada. Nielsen's 2017 end-of-year numbers reveal some interesting trends in music consumption in Canada, so Mike and Paul dig deeper into some of the facts and figures that defined the year. Paul also discusses the future of CDs, how streaming has changed the way we react to musicians’ deaths, and reveals that the music industry has reached a significant milestone in its battle to close the value gap.
