Question: Do You Listen to the Radio?

Like magazines, radio has taken quite a hit in the digital age. Though it has been a bit more stable since it's more convenient to listen to the car's radio than to bring music to your car. Though when I forget my mp3 player, I often get sick of the radio stations. Most of them play what's trendy, which is only a handful songs. Which is a good way to ruin a good song; hearing it over and over and over again.

  1. Every now and then, Mr. Sweet listens to some high school football games on a radio just about like the one in your picture.

  2. I used to listen to the radio when there was an oldies station, but I haven't now for years.

  3. We always used to listen to the radio in the car when driving around, but then we would get out of range of the radio station and get lots of static. Until we found another one and then they would get out of range.

  4. The radio in my studio is stuck on a jazz station, and the radio in my car is stuck on a classic channel. At the pool where I swim they only play country, but that's okay because I'm under the water most of the time.

  5. I don't listen to the radio very often, and when I do, it's usually while I'm driving.

  6. I listen to CBC One on my car radio. It's sort of like your NPR in the States, only better. Sorry, it's the truth.

  7. I can't stand the radio. Like you said, too much of the same trendy songs over and over and over again. Either that or a slew of commercials. If I forget my MP3 player, I have some emergency CDs in the car. Gotta give those poor outdated things some use somehow.

  8. Actually I love my car radio. I'm glad stations play hit songs over and over. I don't drive long distances, and the radio keeps me current, so I'm not clueless about popular songs. But then my KBCO out of Boulder, Colorado, plays a huge variety of music. Have a good one!

  10. Yes, I absolutely do.
    I've rediscoveried the joy of listening to the radio when I stayed for two months in the outdoor with some archaeological groups.
    My favourite station is Virgin Radio, since it is all about rock and there are a lot of older songs, it never bores me :)
    Have a great day!!
