    Default Do You Still Listen to AM/FM Radio?

    It dawned on me recently that by boys (about to turn 11 and 16) have never really listened to regular old AM/FM radio. The youngest for sure, the oldest can't remember it. We live in a VERY rural area and we've had satellite radio in the car for last decade or so. Plus, with all of the streaming services around (I myself use Amazon and iTunes, the hubs uses Pandora, Slacker and Google Music and the boys use a combination of those, as well as Spotify), it got me thinking...

    Does anyone still listen to the radio? If not, what DO you listen to?

    Yes, we listen to AM/PM in our car as we do not have satellite radio. In the last two years I have noticed a lot fewer available channels though. (not sure why?) At home we listen to Pandora.

    When I was a teen, my radio was ALWAYS playing.

    I hook my iPhone into my car speakers and listen to audiobooks or podcasts when I'm driving.

    At home, I rarely listen to music anymore. My kids listen to Pandora or their own personal playlists on their devices. I put a (cheap) sound bar in our game room, so they and their friends can connect their phones and share their music that way.

    Interesting question. My, how life has changed!
