Canceled my Spotify subscription

I canceled my Spotify Premium (Family) subscription today. Finally. This has been such a long time coming.

It's my fault, though. You see, my wife used to use the free version of Pandora and we'd be listening to a station of, say, "Music for the bedroom", and alluvasudden there'd be a loud spoken ad for diapers or something...kind of a mood killer, you know?

So I talked her into Spotify Premium (Family). A few years later I signed up for Apple One or whatever and that includes Apple Music. It's not worth trying to cherry-pick Apple's services, so we ended up paying for two music services. It's been bugging me ever since.

I prepared everyone, helped transfer playlists from Spotify->Music (using TuneMyMusic, which worked a treat), and canceled the subscription. It sure feels good. Apple Music is fine, but I'm still "selling" it to the fam.
