How often do you listen to music?
Constantly. The radio's nearly always on when I'm driving, and my iTunes library is on shuffle pretty much every time I'm at my computer (which is always). I'll pick a favorite song or truncated playlist and play it on repeat while I go to sleep at night.

Do you ever listen to the radio? What is your favorite station?
See above. Favorites change depending on my mood; sometimes it's the classical station, sometimes it's the dance station; for a long while it was the classic rock. At the moment it's a Spanish/Brazilian dance station, despite my not speaking more than a lick of Spanish.

How do you find new songs, albums, or artists to listen to?
If it's not through the radio or the occasional fanvid, usually it can be blamed attributed to [livejournal.com profile] lavenderfrost these days. My crack dealer :) (Also tumblr)

When was the last time you bought a CD? A digital music file?
Technically, I "bought" a CD when I helped fund Megan Joy's Kickstarter project, but actually it was whenever David Cook's latest album came out. Digital was the very end of February

Do you think any of the technologies and distribution methods mentioned above will still be around in ten years? Why or why not?
Digital files, definitely, and also the radio. I don't know about CDs. Hell, some people would've said vinyls wound be gone by this time, but people are still making them to this day (mostly for collectibles, but still). I think CDs have got a good while yet, but digital is definitely on the upswing. I'm curious to see when things like American Idol start tracking their contestants'/winners' sales by their digital downloads, not their album sales.
