I think I am totally addicted to the radio hehe. When I am at home, I am listening to it most of the time. That's why i got a small battery-powered one so that i can take it with me all around the house no matter what I am doing: cooking, showering, etc. I love the radio because even though you cannot see the person talking, it creates a more personal link with the person listening than TV, for example. Besides, radio allows one to multitask more easily than other things like TV, which demand full attention. Do you like listening to the radio? do you do it often? What things do you mainly listen to?

I only listen to the radio when I'm in the car. Around the house I play my playlist on my computer. Even when I'm in the car I usually listen to the radio for a bit and then switch to a CD. I don't like when it switches to commercials or talk radio. I like to listen to music that I like so the CD is the way to go for me.

Hi there.. Even I listen to radio a lot.. I like to keep myself updated on the latest chartbusters so that I can download them onto my computer and my iPod... Radio helps a lot in such cases as u don't always know the title of the song that u want to download...

Many people listen to it while driving...it accompanies you and that's very cool. I mostly use it to listen to the nwes and sports, since for music i prefer to select my own stuff.

i like listening to the radio especially while doing something and at bedtime. it gives a special touch of inspiration while doing a chore and it lightens my mood during the day. during bedtime, it helps me to fall asleep. its a stress reliever for me .

I also regard the radio as a stress reliever...lets me relax my mind and just listen to what is being said without having to worry about my own stuff. That works most of the time, but not always lol. thanks for replying, pink.

Oh yes, certainly! In fact I am listening to it as I am typing now. Nowadays I normally tune in the internet radio (to my local stations) when I am at my desk. Even if I am outside, I would listen to the radio on my phone if there is signal. Life is just too boring with music. =)

I am not listening to the radio right now but really i do it 90 percent of the time that I am on the computer, unless I am listening to some music on the pc or I am having a voice conference. Thanks for replying.

Hi LightninStrike, My office has a small radio which my colleague bring it to there. So everyday, we will switch on it when we arrive at office. If i busy with my work, then i would pay attention what is the topic that DJ talking about. Sometime it will be a good way for us to relax when we feel tired in the office. Sometime we can gain the knowledge from listening to the radio too.

I'm also addicted to the radio. I feel so inspired if I listen to music. If I do something that takes too much time like washing the clothes I always tune in to the radio. It's like an energy booster for me.

I love listening to the radio! And so i do listen to it often. Would you believe that at home, we have radio in the living room, dining room, kitchen and of course, my bedroom. :-) I often listen to CDs / music and also radio AM and FM stations.. My everyday habit? I usually turn my radio on just be before i am about to sleep. Sometimes, i sleep with the radio still on coz i love sleeping with relaxing music in the background.lolz.

I think the radio now, is usually taken for granted because of the many technologies that have been sprouting, lol. There are so many gadgets to choose from in so many different ways just to listen to music. Even then, I still like listening to the radio. I have my favorite radio station and they play varieties, usually jazz. I always listen to it, especially when I am in my bedroom, and even when we are asleep we still listen to the same station. Even in the car, I turn on the radio.

This luxury really is only done when I am driving in my car or no-one is at home and I can play what I really want to hear; otherwise it is headphones on the computer sometimes to just escape into a musicians other world . . . sharing the light, Miss Erica Hidvegi, the Enlightenment Advisor, B.A. Psych/M.A. Transpersonal Studies- Cnslng/Author, Artist, Photographer, Entrepreneur & Freelance extraordinaire http://360.yahoo.com/affect_ive1

Today I don't listen to the radio at all. In the past I liked it but I don't like it any more now. As there are many things to do everyday and therefore I don't have time for listening to the radio. Besides, here the radio programs will be quite boring at night.

I listen to my MP4 often. I am choosy when it comes to songs... depending on my mood is the type of music that i want to listen. And I hate breaks with the DJ making some announcements etc. So I prefer not to listen to radio and use MP4 instead. Also, if there are some task to be done then I plug my MP4 to speakers and its like Im listening to radio.

I am pretty addicted to the radio myself. No matter what I am doing I need to have music playing or I get bored too easily. When I am at the gym I need to have my ipod there, in the shower the radio needs to be going, while doing hw the radio needs to be playing, etc. Otherwise, I get bored with what I am doing and go onto something else. At the gym, I feel if I have my ipod going I can run for twice as long, because I have something entertaining me and I don't get bored just running in the same spot for an hour.
