    I may be in the minority, but the thing that made radio special were the personalities (DJs), but now they're so limited in how often they can open the mic - and generally just voice-track a few trivial comments or show-bizzy gossip tidbits that are barely connected to the music. That may be what listeners want in general, but not me.
    I agree 100%.... I think FM radio is dying, especially music stations. Even on the AM dial, I rarely actually listen to any stations. If I do, I'll steam them through an app in my car.

    Streaming is a platform. If you listen to a radio station stream, it is still listening to that particular station.

    And, as I said before, 90% of adults use radio, and the average usage per week is about 9 1/2 to 10 hours.

    Hardly dying.

    Who was the DJ who locked himself in the studio and played the same song repeatedly for several hours?

    I was in Oahu last week listening to 93.1, and they played Landon McNamara's "Loss for Words" every twenty minutes (nice song). They also do the same for anything new Bruno Mars puts out. I guess you have to hype the local guys.

    No but similar to the incident I had in mind. My recollection is one that happened in the 60's or late 50's.
