Thank you, Rusty.
Would a native speaker make this mistake? I'm almost certain that I heard a native use 'escuchar a' followed by 'la canción' recently.

Is “escuchar a” only used when you are listening to a person (i.e. the personal ‘a’)?
Tenemos que escuchar a Juan.

Would this make the use of ‘a’ as a preposition incorrect in the sentence below?...

''En el año 2000 empezó sus estudios de medicina en la universidad pero decidió dejarlos para poder dedicarse en exclusivo al baloncesto.''

A mistake? Should it be ''en exclusiva''?
