Default Does Anyone Still Listen To The Radio?

With all the choices now (Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, et al), I'm just wondering as I sit here listening to an FM radio station......

Do you listen to terrestrial radio anymore? Not satellite radio, the FM or AM kind.

If not, what's your go to for music listening?

The other day I saw something I hadn't seen in awhile. There as a young black man walking down the sidewalk with a boombox on his shoulder listening to a radio station. In a way it was refreshing since everyone else in the busy city seems to have ear buds as they stare at their mobile ... completely disconnected from the world around them.

So hang in there MSU ... you're retro FM might be making a comeback.

Every time I'm in the car, the radio is on and tuned in to a local station.

I like to listen to classical music sometimes. There is only one XM classical channel and there is one classical station (which I support btw) where I live so I listen to both.

I like listening to the radio, it relaxes me when I'm at home. Sunday's one of my favourite days for just enjoying some radio. Desert Island Discs on today and it's a treat, any so much of BBC radio output amazing. Six Music for ecclectic mix of new, classic and just the right side of odd. Radio 4 for plays, debate and comedy. And Radio 2 for my journey into middle age.

I listen regularly to NPR and some sports talk radio, mostly while driving.

I'm very well aware. What's been happening in some countries on your side of the pond has been most interesting the past several years.

In America, people blew right past HD Radio as if it didn't exist (it still does, but few own receivers except if it was in a car they bought), forcing broadcasters to put their HD stations back on FM on small "translator" stations. A switch here to DAB would be extremely difficult.

Yet, HDTV was mandated by our Federal Government, and analog television died a decade ago. There was no similar push for radio.

Makes me think of another thread question: Who watches over the air television still? Who even knows what that means?

I listen to the radio, but only in the car. Mostly classical during the sunny months because commercial-free classical via HD radio while driving on electric drive is a very peaceful way to travel, and I don't get enough peaceful in my life.

Rather than DAB, I was thinking about the fact that a lot of the wirld has poor internet and can't stream spotify etc and has to still do it the old fashioned way

Remember Dr Demento late at night? Or trying to cheap ass record your favorite song on a cassette tape?

Yeah, I don't really listen to am/FM anymore.

I do think that ASMR is sort of a throw back though.

Yes! Dr. Demento!!

How about the King Biscuit Flour Hour?

And I still have tapes where I recorded songs off the radio from my childhood.
