I grew up listening to radio and, until this day, I still enjoy it. I have however noticed that less and less people are interested in listening to it nowadays. Why do you think this is happening?

I think when the iPod came along years ago and it was easy to use in the car, that it slowly took away radio listeners. Why not? It plays your favorite music without commercials and you can download podcasts if you miss talk radio. I think satellite radio is still fairly popular though. What about your friends and family? What do they listen to?

Hi, I do satellite in the auto, otherwise everything is hard copy right here. I own several great FM receivers (Marantz etc) but don't use any of them for over the air music.

Good Listening

I may be a bit old-fashioned, but I still really enjoy listening to the radio. In my opinion, there are some radio programs that no amount of new technology could ever replace.

I tend to just listen to radio when doing local car trips. And then with music formats offering limited involvement for me, I'll tune around the presets with frustration. I usually end up listening to NPR news. One regular feature on it I like is called Science Friday, hosted by Ira Flatow. Sounds like Playdough to me. I'm old enough to remember when AM radio was the only available formats. It was king, then FM came along and changed everything. It's evolved to what it is today. Everything changes, everything stays the same. Bada bing, bada boom.

Radio shows used to be a jump off for television programming as some of the comedies, dramas, and documentaries are just adaptations of what started there. Now it seems like social media is the jump off for television programming. Radio is losing its influence on modern culture. It's weird to see it happening.

Do you remember this choice program from the glory days of top 40 and DJ personalities.

Kids these days are not easily entertained by just listening to something because they need to see it or even have to be engaged with it like video games. People these days are less patient as well because of apps or sites where they can listen (and watch) their favorite music.
