Posted By Jill Greenberg On September 18, 2007 @ 4:24 pm In Entertainment | No Comments

Astudy out today shows 70 percent of baby boomers bought music last year and account for one in three CDs purchased last year. Study was done by the NPD group for AARP [1] and the National Association of Record Merchandisers [2].
Also, one and four boomers are buying online. With 76 million of them (boomers), it’s a good thing we don’t have to worry about Tony Bennett [3] or Aretha Franklin [4]being out of stock. Whew.
