    Since robo-dialers are computers, they really don't have feelings at all.

Or, it could be that Geezers listen actively to AM radio and use Geezer-TV as something to put them to sleep. It's complicated.
    This geezer has XM and Spotify and Prime music as well as Prime video, Hulu, Britbox and Netflix. I have cable, but most of the time I watch the OTT offerings. I can use all the audio sources in the car, and the video can follow me on my tablet and laptop.

    I have many friends and neighbors who use these and more, and some that use fewer of them. But the idea that seniors are inept technophobes is a bit exaggerated.

    Actually, robo-dialers are computers but the robo-callers are people.

    I have discovered having an internet based phone is a great way to avoid them as I can take advantage of other published 'ignore' number lists as well as add my own to the list. No more depending upon the gubmint's no-call list.

    Having an all 70s weekend or a super 60s, number ones, beach summer songs, ....etc.....is an easy thing to do. Not rocket science.

    Reality sometimes sucks when it gets in the way of preconceived notions.

    I totally agree however I am one of those geezers who likes his peace and quiet so I carry a minimum of technology around with me.

    Agreed. I can hear it now: Help, I've fallen and I can't reach my phone to take a selfie.

    None specifically, but there is always opportunity to try "new" and adventurous things, especially when youre trying to sound old school. The classic Firecracker 300 is a great beginning. The listeners would love it, especially the 55+ You may not, however.

    Just because its 2019 doesnt mean stations cant return to original programming. The Game Show network still airs classic Dick Clark Pyramid shows from the 80s.....capiche?
