Do you listen to the radio? - February 4th 2011, 07:43 PM

I used to listen to the radio, but now I like to discover "barely heard before" artists


The reason being is, the song on the radio are overplayed, and seem to all be about the same thing.

Then again, I listen to the radio when I drive.

I like music that most people wouldn't.

So, do YOU listen to the radio? Why or why not?

I occasionally listen to the radio, mainly with my dad, and all we ever listen to is BBC radio 2. Full of political debates or some good old school stuff.

I listen to sometimes in the car, mostly when someone else turns it on. The only stations I like are the classic rock ones. Other than that I don't like much of the music played on the radio so I mainly listen to CD's in the car.

I only listen to the radio in my car when other people are in it, then I put it on the country station. If it's just me in my car I plug in my iPod and just listen to my driving playlist.

I only listen to it when i'm in my mums car. I can imagine when I start driving mine again i'll put it on occasionally but would rather plug in my ipod. At least then you know you're going to like all of the music.

I do listen to the radio when I drive but it's usually news or talk shows not music. When I want to listen to music which is not that often I plug in my iPod.

I do, but not as often as I listen to CDs or my mp3 player. I do love it when my favourite song comes on the radio. It's like they're playing it for me and it makes my day

No, because the stations repeat the same music over and over.

I do. Radio 1, Radio 2 and Kerrang

I put Chris Moyles Radio 1 on when I am getting ready for school in the morning.

Radio 2 is the station of choice in Mum or Dad's car.

I will usually put Kerrang on when doing homework or something if I am bored of my ipod. Kerrang is normally what I listen to when getting ready for a night out too

Just when I'm in the car. I like the mix stations - the ones that play oldies and new-ish, not rap music. And of course country, my favorite type of music. :]

Re: Do you listen to the radio? - February 4th 2011, 10:40 PM

I wouldn't make the two-hour drive home if I didn't listen to the radio. I need music to function.

Though, I've stopped listening to most pop stations. I listen to more country now. There's a little bit more variety on country stations. ^_^

I also listen to online radio stations. Right now I am listening to 103 WKDF out of Nashville. For pop stations, my favorite radio station in the country is probably Y98 out of St. Louis. I also listen to MIX 105.1 Orlando. Also, when I was in Nashville I liked listening to their pop station, 107.5 The River.

Though, yes, it's nice to find the barely discovered singers sometimes, too. That's when I listen to Pandora. I've found some really great songs on there that I would have never heard otherwise.

Not music radio. I listen to BBC Radio 4 quite a lot when I'm not at university, though. This probably says all sorts of worrying things about me.

Yes. All the time.

When I listen to country music, I can find new artists.
I listen to alot of different stuff so I always change the station. I listen to pop, r&b, country, tejano.

I really hate the radio. My lecturers give me into trouble for it, because I actually have to sit a Radio class, but it really does nothing for me. I can tolerate BBC Radio 2, but anything else sends me round the bend.

I tend to not listen to radio friendly music, and I prefer to chose what I listen to =P
so nay

I listen to the radio when I'm riding in the car. Although, when I get a new Ipod charger, I will probably use that. Well, I will when I drive.

I listen to the radio (and sometimes CDs) every night while I'm sleepin'. It helps me relax and get things off my mind. :3

I also listen to it while in the car.

I like the radio occasionally when I'm doing things around the house.
I discovered recently that I enjoy the oldies stations. A lot of Billy Joel and Elton John on those ones. I also like stations that play a lot of 80's stuff. We happen to have a lot of these stations around where I live.
So, yes, I like to listen to the radio. Not in the car, though. I like CD's in the car.


So I will find my fears and face them
I will cower like a dog
I will kick and scream
I will kneel and plead
I'll fight like hell to hide that I'm givin' up

I do sometimes but when I do it's usually because my mum is listening to it as she listens to it all the time.
