Pandora’s CMO Thinks Sony’s New Walkman Is as Cool as the Return of Vinyl

Among Sony's announcements at CES 2015 was the unveiling of a high-end Walkman, which intrigued audiophiles everywhere. One of them, naturally, is Pandora CMO Simon Fleming-Wood, who stopped by Adweek's Aria bureau to chat about what interests him this year. A veteran of 15 CES gatherings, Fleming-Wood likened the Walkman news to the resurgence of vinyl, something that feels both retro and advanced at the same time. He also spent some time checking out the connected cars, given that that's an area Pandora continues to make inroads.
