    One issue I had with Apple Music when I had it turned on along with iCloud Music Library during the trial period, is that for some unknown reason, it would duplicate my Playlists. I have over 23,000 songs in my iTunes Library and I have several playlists built. For example, I have a “Classic Rock” playlist with over 1,000 songs on it. Apple Music would create a playlist named “Classic Rock 2” but it would have a different number of songs on it. This would happen with pretty much all my playlists that I had built.

    I googled it and tried some different things but ultimately had to turn off iCloud Music Library and restore my iTunes library from a previous backup and the duplicate playlists disappeared. I do have an iTunes Match subscription, which worked great before Apple Music was introduced, but currently have everything turned off until I can figure out this issue.

    This is the main reason I stopped using Apple Music. Now I just use Spotify when I want to listen to new stuff that comes out. If I decide to buy the music I get it from iTunes or Amazon.

    Thanks again for your hard work on these shows. I always enjoy listening to them, usually on my commute to work!

    Have a great day!
