I’m know we’ve had this conversation before but since becoming a postman it’s become more relevant to me so I’m firing up the “how do you listen to your music?” chat once again. I’m out and about for 5 hours a day and it’s a great opportunity to listen to music and I’m also hoping to get into some podcasts (recommendations welcome). Currently I have Spotify premium on my phone but I don’t have endless data and not a huge amount of storage space so I haven’t found it very user friendly as I constantly lose internet connection with my BT Wi-Fi. Also their recommendations and lay out are frustrating. The endless choice however is a major plus. Today however I dug out my old iPod classic and just hit shuffle. 5 hours of varied listening with no loss of signal but I lose the ability of trying some new or new old without committing to it.
Being a postman is lovely, physically more challenging than I expected but getting out of the rat race to deliver letters and parcels in the fresh air means my music spending has to be carefully monitored. So it boils down to choice, connection and cost. £ 9.99 a month for Spotify premium vs limiting myself to £10 a month spending on iTunes. I suppose I also have to figure in the lifespan of my iPod classic vs spending more on a phone contract with more mobile data. A conundrum for me a possibly interesting conversation for you. All thoughts, advice and recommendations welcome……Thanks
