    I resemble that remark.

    Of course it counts. It would be like saying cable wasn't watching TV.

    Oh, shit! :eek: I must be hanging out with some really delusional people. Among them: my daughter, my son-in-law, theirs sons, my live-in helper, her boyfriend, my niece, and numerous others. They're liars--LIARS, I tell you! They SAY they're varying decades younger than 60. I must set them straight! :mad:

    I don't listen to music on the radio now even in a car, only talk or a football broadcast.

    I got in to my favourite music though on a good portable mono radio set in the early seventies while doing my long homework alone in the evening. I think recordings were optimised for these types of mono broadcasts, and a later purchase of the vinyl stereo version could sometimes be disappointing at first.

    I didn't and don't generally like Irish musicians (and I'm Irish) but many decades later (about 15 years ago) I heard a track by Van Morrison referencing tuning for music on radio stations of that era and before.
    I loved it so much I bought the album "Enlightenment" and his 3 disc "Still On Top" compilation (2007) and loved his stuff and the musical arrangements ever since.

    The track was "In the Days before Rock 'n' Roll":

    Justin, gentler than a man
    I am down on my knees
    At the wireless knobs
    I am down on my knees
    At those wireless knobs
    Telefunken, Telefunken
    And I'm searching for
    Luxembourg, Luxembourg,
    Athlone, Budapest, AFN,
    Hilversum, Helvetia
    In the days before rock 'n' roll

    In the days before rock 'n' roll
    In the days before rock 'n' roll

    When we let, then we bet
    On Lester Piggott when we met
    We let the goldfish go

    In the days before rock 'n' roll
    Fats did not come in
    Without those wireless knobs
    Fats did not come in
    Without those wireless knobs
    Elvis did not come in
    Without those wireless knobs
    Nor Fats, nor Elvis
    Nor Sonny, nor Lightning
    Nor Muddy, nor John Lee

    In the days before rock 'n' roll
    In the days before rock 'n' roll

    When we let and we bet
    On Lester Piggott 10/1
    And we…

    No. You need a DJ without a corporate playlist to truly do radio.

    For me it's more interesting to make an AM & FM radio than it is just to listen to AM & FM Screenshot_20200506_190736_com.taobao.taobao.jpg

  10. Don't listen to the radio often, but when I do, it's KPIG with classic rock. & county. Most of my music comes from You Tube, where I will listen to my friend Henry Kapono from Hawaii.

    At home, mostly talk radio, not for me but for the bird. He doesn't like it when it's quiet and doesn't seem to like music so he keeps up on the news (Win 1010 from NYC - I don't live there haha). If I am in a different room for a while then it's Pandora. The car is mostly always Pandora, sometimes an alternative radio station. I also have a bunch loaded to my phone so listen to that too (Poweramp ftw).

    I've got one actual plug in the wall AM-FM radio left. I had planned to take it to my job but I'm not sure if it has a headphone jack. I worry what my co-workers might think of my music choices. They are way younger than me.

    BRB after I check for the jack.

    Okay. It's a Cambridge Soundworks Radio 705 and does have a headphone jack. I definitely will donate it to my worksite.

    Unfortunately it's plastic and kind of bulky with the jack on the back. I think this plastic design is what caused Henry Kloss to ignore Cambridge Soundworks and continue with Tivoli audio.

    Anywho I'll be back to turning the dial pretty soon.

    Under $100. A box that picks up WiFi, Bluetooth or AM/FM.

    I use jump drives with "borrowed" music from YouTube for the Kenwood in the truck as well as the Onkyo in the living room;


    I used to listen to the Dr.Demento show as well.
