Re: Do you listen to radio?

I don't even have a radio at home anymore (except for my Medieval knight radio whose sword is a letter opener that I've had since 1972 and is just used as a decoration now, since he would only pick up AM even if he had a battery). In my car I have four presets-- two oldies stations, one Rock and one Easy Listening, and two modern stations, one Rock(ish) and one Easy Listening(ish). At home, I either listen to Pandora or the digital music stations on cable. I've occasionally thought about getting satellite radio, but I don't know that I would use it enough to justify the expense.

All the time. There's a radio in the bathroom, the bedroom, the living room, the kitchen, the car.

About half of the podcasts I listen to are radio shows too.

Not at home, except the odd show, but Radio 2 is on all day at work.

Several stations in the Boston area used to run old radio shows like 'The Shadow', 'Sherlock Holmes' and others. They were great late night listening.

Sometimes. Mainly in the car though. Usually to music, sometimes NPR.

I listen to NPR on my commute to and from work. I don't listen to any music stations.

Re: Do you listen to radio?

In the car to and from work, which adds up to about 40 minutes each day. I never listened to radio as a kid, and consequently did not know many of the songs that were popular at the time, which is a bit of a social handicap.

Until I came here:

WBBM News Radio (Chicago Market)
NPR (National Public Radio)
WSFR (Star Fleet Radio)
"Boothby in the Morning"
"Seven of Nine Countdown" -afternoon drive/fly time

Here in the U.A.E., not so much...1 Classical Station and a lot of Koranic channels

Re: Do you listen to radio?

I listen to radio all of the time. In the car, at work, at home when I can. I have radio's set on my local high school station (classic rock) and listen when they aren't playing gospel music. I also tune in to the local classic country station, although they seem to think that classic country only goes back to 1981. There's a local classic rock station and a current country station as well. None of these commercial stations have compelling personalities but they are a great source of local "going's on" and news.
