Actually, a CD is better than FM. FM radio dates back to the 1950's and is analog tech. A lossless CODEC can provide CD (or better) quality over the 'net.

Radio, someone still loves you..... (still great)


And if you like CD’s, I shop at thrift stores now. Four for $1. Can’t beat it.

I've converted most of my CDs to MP3, so I can play them on my phone, tablet and computer. I don't recall when I last put a CD in a drive or player, other than in my car. I have a portable CD player here that I haven't used in over 15 years.

Radio is my trusted companion.
I agree. I still like a little talk between my music. Not a lot, but at least the weather, scores of the big games and the latest news. You can call me a boomer, if you like.

Because ‘Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me’, ‘Car Talk’ and ‘Because News’ are still on all my radio dials :)

I'll see your weather, scores, and news and raise you interesting information about the song/artist. Before the internet much of what I learned about songs and artists came from DJs. For example, what was the inspiration for Lucy in the sky with diamonds?

it is almost two years since the first post of this thread...
Two years later, and I still will never use any internet or commercial satellite radio platform...eg SXM garbage..
Closest for me is the free radio feeds I find on the Ku band antenna, then feed to my personal FM modulator.
Not that I really use it or need it for anything, but I can so I do...

That would be on FM only. AM didn't go much for that sort of thing. I remember when CHUM FM switched from classical music to rock. There were no ads and hosts knew their music. They even brought in Murray the K for a while.

I listen to SXM in the car, Ku radio on Shaw Direct, Internet radio at times as well as FM radio over the air. I guess I listen to a lot of media. It often depends on my mood and on my location.

I love that Shaw includes FM channels. As a SageTV user, I can load up the SageTV Miniclient on my Android phone, and Bluetooth any of those channels to my car radio.
