Now I can literally listen to whatever I want, whenever I want, or make my own playlists, or hear curated playlists based on my interests. And for a tiny amount of money, I can do it ad free. And even if I'm too cheap, its only one short ad.

But no, I'm gonna listen to DJ Crystal Johnson on 104.3 KKNK "The Kink" talk about the "crazy" weekend she's gonna have at the iHeartradio concert in between half hour blocks of commercials and the latest from Coldplay .

Totes on board. Or - and I posit that this is worse - those times where the DJ acts like they're telling you something about how awesome xfinity is but it's really an advertisement. Oh man. At least say it's an ad, or something? Because it sounds like a personal anecdote to make the ad seem relatable but really it's someone getting paid to shill.

yeah it's so transparent, too.

you guys are listening to the wrong radio stations

The only time I listen to radio is if there is someone else in the car with me, and even then it's usually https://www.allclassical.org. Though there are times - such as during their pledge season - that we change the channel due to too much talking.

Side note: Everyone should listen to The Score on the weekends.
Quote:
The Score is a weekly celebration of symphonic music in film. Airs Sat. & Sun. at 2 PT on All Classical 89.9 in Portland, OR, & online at http://www.allclassical.org/.

You know, the Subway we stopped at on the drive last week was playing a local station so I can't argue with this.

AM still has a place I guess. Right wing boomers can get their Rush Limbaugh fix.

i don't understand why – on a Pearl Jam message board – people use Ed's full name in posts while talking about the band. for example: "Eddie Vedder's vocals on Oceans last night weren't great"
