You're right, and in the future I'm sure there will be no difference between 
streaming and CDs. In fact, probably most music will be streamed on mobile 
devices and downloads will go the way of the 8-track.  It's a tough issue 
that needs to be resolved, and I agree there is huge value in hearing the 
full range of an artist's work on a single show moderated by a knowledgeable 
person.  So I see legitimacy in both sides of the argument but I think a 
better solution than the existing one needs to be provided. I just don't 
have it to offer.
