I only listen to radio, when I get in bed at night and in the mornings, when I wake up, so I don't matter much what songs are being played.

No.

My problem is that the radio tends to play the "it" song off of an album when there are clearly better tracks on the album.

No, I would listen to the radio more if there was some element of interactivity other than having to change the station every time a song I don't like comes on.

Also, I would listen the radio more if I had a radio :retard:

In England right now it's impossible to listen to the radio for more than 5 minutes without hearing "Sugar We're Going Down" by Fall Out Boy. I liked it at first but now it's just ANNOYING.

Hey Todd! Good to see you posting again.

I only listen to the radio in the car and I do it basically to keep with today's music. If I didn't listen to the radio I would never know about Keisha Cole, Neo and the rest. I wish they played more songs so to answer the poll YES I would.

It all depends. Especially in the USA when I go there, the radio tends to put the same songs over and over again. On the other hand, I like most of the songs they play. Here in Quebec we have a lot more variety in the music choices, so it makes listening to radio interesting. But I do listen to it only when I'm in the car.

exactly, the in crowd doesn't listen to commercial radio any more, it's a medium of rapidly shrinking importance. I'm amazed they are still in business with all the satellite stuff that's available now.

I would actually listen to the radio at all if they played a wider selection of music. The radio use to be about exposing the populace to artists they would've never heard before and now it's about payola.
