Radio is the most important medium for finding out about new bands/artists (67%). This is followed by friends’ recommendations (63%), and MTV and other music channels (49%). General interest, music magazines/newspapers and blogs achieve very low scores at 21%, 17% and 14% respectively.

YouTube has soared into pole position as the default website that this age group turn to for checking out new artists (38%). Myspace (and a band’s own website) come a distant joint second, each scoring 15%.

70% of those who expressed a view do not feel guilty about downloading music for free from the internet.

The average price that respondents think is fair to pay for a CD album is just GBP6.58 (approx.$9.50) For a download album the average drops to GBP3.91(approx$5.50) and for a download single the average is 39p(approx 55 cents).

On average 43% of the music owned and enjoyed by the age group has not been paid for. This increases to 49% for 15-19 year olds.
