I only use an actual radio when I'm in my car driving. When I want to listen to the radio at home I use an app or go to the station's website and stream the audio. How often do you use an actual radio to tune in?

I have an old FM radio that I purchased for $10 about twelve years ago. I have it on all the time while I do housework. A few months ago I tried to use an app on my tablet for the radio and the darn thing gave me so much trouble I went back to my old trusted friend. Apps are too much trouble. I'll use Spotify while I'm on my computer sometimes but that's it.

This makes the two of us. These apps have it much easier to tune in at any time but nothing comes close to listening to an actual radio. I guess we are heading to a time when there will hardly be any reason to purchase a radio.

I have a station I listen to on the radio when I'm in range. When I go out of range, which is roughly 100 miles, I turn on the app, plug in the aux cord and continue on.

I use a radio only when I'm in my parents car. I use the TV or my phone at home. I listen to music through my phone (bluetooth) or Sirius. I get sick of all the chatter on the radio.
