We use the radio for knowing the latest news or listening to music for relaxation. Which one do you usually use the radio for and why? I use the radio mostly for the music part. I can get my news when I scan the internet.

I use it for both for news and music. The radio station I'm listening to is a news outlet, and they play classical music in-between the news. I dream of having my own radio station.

I listen to radio mainly in the car. Both music and news. NPR for news and flipping around for any decent music from commercial radio. Which, when I get tired of flipping around for some half arsed decent song I go to NPR. Then I'll retreat to a classical music station when the news and commercial music gets too absurd.

I don't like the news, but I will listen to certain talk radio shows that are basically commenting on the news. Their own personal take on it.

I barely ever listen to radio, but when I do I would rather listen to music. I can get both music and news from the internet and other sources; but for the music, radio plays a lot of songs that I like but had forgotten about. When I play music from the internet, I tend to repeat a lot of songs, but the radio plays many songs outside of what I normally listen to, but still enjoy.

Pato is correct about radio stations playing the music that we like, even the ones we haven't heard for a long time. I just don't like radio commentators that talk about nonsense.

I listen to a few talk radio shows. It allows me to make the most of my commute by learning something new that's still entertaining enough to keep me from zoning out in traffic.
