CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke review the week in music and the music business, including the relaunch of Xfm and the BBC’s streaming ambitions, more on the safe harbours debate and Google’s takedowns, Sony/ATV’s concerns about one particular consent decree reform in the US, and Sam Smith being a big fat liar. And recording a Bond theme. The CMU Podcast is sponsored by 7digital.
