Hi friends, If their is no other appliances around except television set and radio set, if you have to choose only one, which one would you like to have? and why? Well for me i choose radio set for i like listening to the music and ofcourse i can still do a lot of work while listening to the radio.

I prefer both.. When i was at home, i prefer the TV, to watch and also when ever i used to travel, i like the redio, because we can hear the music even when we travel through Radio. When ever i am working in system also, at home, if i don't want to distrub the others i used to hear the Radio by my headset. Radio will help us to hear the music without distrubing others.. Televisions will help us to watch with with all our family members.. but both are very much required and preferred to the people like me.. because when i go to college i used to hear the Radio in the Bus, because it will take a minimum of 40 minutes travel from my home to college.. And also during any of the holiday and any functions, all the televisions channels will give some good programmes, so, we used to watch that too by sitting at our home with all our family members. Have a good day.

Either radio or television is a different media, but if i must choose, i prefer to radio, why because it's use less energy,a lot of information, beside the radio generate less radiation than television, and more compact.

I would still choose TV because my Tv has radio in it too so if i did not want to watch TV then i can put on the radio part and do my work and when i want to watch TV then i could put it on.I am fortunate to have both the devil and the deep sea ,a choice not available to many.This is because i have a set top box which connects my cable Tv to the satellite and enables me to have best of both worlds.Ain`t i lucky?Besides if i had only radio and i wanted to watch TV i would be forced to go to some neighbour`s house and they may not like it.

Hi veejay19, Well, you are very lucky for having t.v and radio at the same time. Let us say that t.v and the radio is separated, if you have to choose only one what would you like to have and why?

Hi Margarit! I would choose TV, because I can also listen to the music from there, in MTV, lol. I have some few favourite shows that I watch everyday. Actually if you ask me this few years ago, I will definitely choose radio as don't normally watch anything in TV before. Thanks!

Hi Cjay, Okay as long you injoy listening to t.v. than watching the show, it make a sense to me, t.v. has dual purpose now for your can also listen to it without watching but still it can also distruct your work time to time for you need to find out what you heard in the t.v. Thanks for the respond.

[b]hi, Margarit i am a TV person so i will choose television set. in our house, it seems that i cannot do anything without the TV turned on. i will turn the tv on before i start cleaning, cooking, taking a bath, even reading. or mylotting. i do not have to have my eyes glued to it all the time. i just listen and when something catches my attention then i will walk to the tv and watch. weird huh? have a great day, friend[/b]!

Well, i guess it is our preferences what ever you like, i like also watching t.v. infact i have televison in my room than the radio but if i have someting to do i prefer more on radio for i dont need to look at it and it will not distract my work. And also music can makes my mood happy and energize. Thanks for the respond.

I think that I would also be one to pick the radio as you can listen to music and also to shows from time to time, such as sports. I'm not sure of any other shows but they do have comical bits on radio.

Hi somecowgirl, I remember before when our television is not functioning so we have use radio for a moment, there is also a drama series that i love to heard everyday. And it is funny for they have to say it detail by detail and with sounds so the listener will understand about what they are doing. Thanks for the respond.

I am about the same way. If I have other things I need to concentrate on, I will usually go for the radio or some other source of music. I tend to get lazy and pre-occupied when I turn on the TV...

The same with me goldeneagle, Listen radion doesnt required attention for it is just like a background in your surrounding. While t.v. need to be focus attention especially when you are watching movies. thanks for the respond.

as Tv is immovable we have to watch it between four walls, where as radio can be listened even while travelling and working. When we watch TV we cannot concentrate on other works. so radio got lots of advantages.

Radio has become all but extinct with the advent of the TV, but it is a good companion. it can be very handy if yo are on the move. it can keep you entertained. I still remember the programmes which used to be popular in teh 60s and 70s. A radio was a must an dit gave you a lot of entertaining moments.

My Dear Friend I will choose TV instead of radio. Because TV is an audio visual device and where as radio is merely an audio device. So I think TV is far better than radio to me . Thanks For raising such a good discussion.....! Happy Mylotting ! Take Care ! Ganesh !

hmm, a hard a question, can I have both? hmmm, I think I'll choose TV, since I think it's more entertaining and can do lots with it than the radio. I like listening to music too, but I think I can do that as well in TV and also by having it, I can watch movies or any TV programs too. So, I'll choose TV but it would be much better if I can have both.

I think it will be the television set, I feel empty without watching some tv. I listen to the radio at work and when I am driving which is sure makes me company. However I will not sleep without seeing some television :)
