Does anyone here actually listen to the radio. the constant commercials and bad music selection just piss me off. its like, why listen to the radio when you can get your own songs that you like and put them on a cd/ your mp3 and listen to them without commercials. just seems kinda pointless

Public radio annoys me. Too much overplaying and too many commercials.


Nevertheless, I don't dislike it too much. After all, I got two free concerts from KROQ

I almost never listen to the radio in my own vehicle. It's always the Ipod. My mom's van has Sirius so if if I'm driving that I'll listen to it.

1. I hate 90% of the music on the radio
2. Commercials for useless shit I know dumbasses will buy piss me off greatly
3. Its all topped off with announcers who aren't funny and morons who call in asking for the same song over and ****ing over

So, no, I gave up the radio long ago.

I listen to the radio only when I'm driving. There's a couple stations that are still good here in Austin. 93.7 plays a lot fo good rawk. 107.1 is a good blues/folk/soul/country station. I listen to public radio sometimes. NPR has some good shows. I prefer listening to local stations over internet or satellite radio because of the fact that they're local. Radio commercials piss me off a lot though. They're worse than TV commercials I think.

89.5, university of toronto radio, sometimes it sucks, but when it's good it's really good.....

When a song you like comes on the radio, it is a lot more refreshing than just selecting it in your media library, though, don't you think?

the riduculous amount of commercials and all the shitty music they play before they play the good songs isn't worth it. and the fact that if you put it on shuffle, life is beautiful helps

^ Well, I usually play my iPod on shuffle anyways.


Yeah, me too. I was just making an argument that was pro radio. If I do listen to the radio (usually when I'm washing dishes), then I listen to classic rock stations on my Dad's DAB radio. I enjoy a lot of the music on there.

Where I live there's a station called 93 rock and I love it. I always listen to it in my car and I like 90% of the songs they play. All the other stations suck though....
#21
I like good internet radio stations. I've found Radiostorm, Virgin Radio UK, and Radio Paradise to be quality listens. They give me the opportunity to branch out to new music, and they play a few songs I recognize. It's really nice.

I sometimes listen to the Craig Charles Funk Show on BBC Radio 6 and Classical FM but I prefer just choosing my own music from CDs/mp3s

down here in san diego were lucky to still have an independent radio station 94.9
there chill wth music and let you call in pretty much anything, heh and they have
the greatest rule of where they dont allow themselves to talk over the beginning
of songs. i wish more stations would follow their example
#26
local classic rock station is great, they play alot of live sh*t, have 'think Pink' on mondays, and 'led before bed' on wednesdays (an hour each) which is just live sh*t from god knows f*ckin where

they even gave away the guitar George Thorogood used when he toured here
#27
i hardly ever listen to regular radio it just pisses me off, online radio is much better...

I listen in the car, but rarely otherwise. Besides, Craig Nicholls told me not to.

I usually just listen to my mp3 player.
The only radio I listen to is talk radio, because when the presenter isn't totally inane it can be entertaining, and it keeps me in touch with the news etc.
