The state of over the air radio has to be dying. I personally hate listening to the radio.
I share office space with an insurance agent and their staff. They have a little radio in the corner set to a popular valley station. I swear it only plays commercials.
So informal study time. I noted on my whiteboard every time i walked by and it was actually playing a song. 5 days, and I walk through to the bathroom or lunch room 4 – 7 times per day. After 1 week, I have heard it playing music 5, yes 5 whole times.
I know thats a pretty random and not very scientific study, but it solidified my feelings that the radio is dead, and internet radio is king. I will gladly pay $36 a year for pandora and never hear an ad. Considering i listen to 30+ hours of music per week, thats a bargin.
