Don't know if all radio stations are the same no matter what state or town you live in but in Syracuse you got .
Modern rock where pretty much every band sounds the same .
Then you got this pop music that it seems to me only tweens listen to .
Country stations that play the same songs day after day .
Can't forget the rap stations not going to even touch that one .
Lastly talk and sports stations .
To keep myself from jamming a spork into my eardrum or ripping the radio out .
i try not to drive too far or keep my MP3 player handy .

Radio's free, buying CD's is not. I preferred cassettes before they stopped producing those, since they tend to "skip" while I'm walking unless I VERY CAREFULLY handle the player, and cassettes don't do that.

I do a lot of walking. I also hear "radio" at work, although there are rarely any commercials. The only thing I don't like about radio is morning talk shows--like Bob and Ted, or Bubba the Love Sponge, or Howard Stern or whoever. I'd rather they just shut their mouths and play MUSIC--that's why I'm tuned in, not to hear some guy blabber for a few hours.

I did not listen to anything except public radio in the mornings until I moved to Minneapolis. There is an awesome music station here that plays 70's stuff I havent heard in decades. Now, i actually will put on the radio for hours at a time - I havent done that in a long long long time.

I have one classical music station, that also posts NPR stuff. I like that til the station plays anything vocal - I don't like female opera voices for some reason.
One rock station that does the stuff - mostly I like, but yes, too much chatter & advertising.

I use an old radio/dual tape deck/CD player when I'm outside doing yard work.
No station in years has been like WNEW/NY releasing/premiering new stuff. At least to my knowledge, or in my area.

Terrestrial radio is dead. Anyone not listening to internet radio is an idiot because they are missing out on truckloads of great music.

I listen retro radio at 104.5 fm in Russia, if it is interesting to somebody. I like our old songs.

Boy, it'd be interesting to hear that.
Thanks for the input, Alexandr.


RobE boy, cool it. Name calling's un-necessary. And disregards peoples' lifestyles and reasons for doing/using what they do.
If you don't have something constructive to say (as your mother must have told you 1,000 times) - shut it.

I could listen to this station if it was streamed online...online streaming is the saving grace of lousy reception...

I could not pick up low wattage Cleveland college radio in Akron if not for streaming audio...
