This week’s Music Ally podcast sees our journalists Eamonn Forde and Stuart Dredge discussing the week’s digital music news. Including: The UK’s inclusion of streams in the official singles chart, and why YouTube and SoundCloud are missing; Ed Sheeran’s interactive TV ad and YouTube takeover; Patreon’s funding for crowdfunding; YouTube’s ongoing battle with indies over music licensing; and why social media ruined the prospects of Prince at Glastonbury. Bonus content: wild accusations about cat-face kicking from prominent pop stars, and for the first time a live audience (albeit one of uninterested half-naked people on their balconies opposite our new ‘al fresco’ podcast studio – aka a pontoon in Regent’s Canal).
