 A friend tells me that people aren't really buying CDs (and CDRs) anymore.
 How have things changed in the last 5 years regarding fans buying CDs at shows?

I still sell CDs at live shows. I also buy them sometimes for as cheap as $3 a piece used. It's easy to forget because not so many people in NY have cars but I believe people still listen to CDs in their cars.

 I've ridden in two vehicles recently that take flashdrives.

 Have you noticed bandcamp sales increase while on tour?

Ditto on the CD car situation. A friend of mine loaned me his car for two weeks while I was building my space. He has a 6 disc changer in there and it was nice to listen to old CD albums front to back. I dug it. 

Personally, I haven't bought a new CD in a long while, but I'm given them from time to time from artists I work with and friends who want me to hear their new record. 

The last album I bought was Adele's 25, for my wife, at Christmas time. We listened to that thing for a week while we were visiting family in Indiana, also driving around in a car. We still listen to it here at the apartment, though it's been loaded into iTunes now.

   I always joke that I'm one of the last four people who still buy cds. I love cds. I'm a cd man. But the fact seems that people seem not as interested in that format anymore. I have a wishful hope that they will come back into favor. And I've noticed that the price of cds by new artists have gone up a dollar or two more per cd.
