A first in music history – Google Glass on stage gives the fan a rock-star view. It only took 18 years, but Alanis Morissette has a new jagged little pill to swallow in the form of a viral video correction. How to derail a radio station contest. We’ll tell you about the Internet force behind a scrapped Taylor Swift contest and the 39 year old sad sack who will never get to smell her hair. The collapse of file sharing. We’ll graph the decline of the stolen song and the rise of streaming music apps. Plus – our youngest ever co-producer, an update on our Crappiest Cans contest, and how you can watch us do the show live.
