The Beatles Survey: Group Could Impact Streaming Customers

Today is Global Beatles Day. The Beatles have long been considered one of, if not the most popular musical groups of all time. Many of their songs still get a lot of airplay. But with the rising popularity of streaming services like Spotify and Pandora, The Beatles haven’t allowed their music to be added to such platforms. How many would like to see their music added to streaming services? And what are people’s overall opinions of The Beatles?
