Half the Entire US Population Primarily Discovers Music on Radio:


Will the radio continue to be a driving force in the music industry in the next 10-20 years? Is the radio's relevance slipping, or have we hit a plateau in terms of how much influence the internet can possibly have on the musical diet of Americans? If the radio continues to fall in terms of popularity, what will the music industry look like then? Will tastes change because of it?

The radio is sort of irrelevant to me now that I have Spotify Premium!

i stopped listening to the radio because im sick and tired of hearing the same 3 led zeppelin and aerosmith songs being played over and over since i was a child. so fuck the radio.
I'm 15 and I never listen to the radio anymore, I used to be a massive YMCMB/MBM fan until around two years ago when I discovered Underground Hip-Hop, now after hearing K Rino, Aesop Rock and Jedi Mind Tricks lines like "She got a big booty so I call her big booty" just don't do it for me anymore.

I don't listen to the radio much (because I don't have satellite, and there are no metal channels in Oklahoma as far as I know), but there's just, some good feeling when you hear a song you like on the radio, as apposed to when you just pull it up on Youtube or a music player.

I've never listened to the radio by free will, I discover new music and bands by myself by pure chance or I get recommended something by a friend. I don't use Youtube to find new music. I don't really find new music, it finds me

It's a more convenient tool for those who don't really care about what they listen to but still want to listen to music which is where the "illuminati controls the music industry" fiasco comes in. But yeah, looking for music through the internet is the much more pleasant and satisfying alternative.
23 and british, i usually only listen to talk shows on the radio because the music is invariably shite

Honestly, the radio serves me no good purpose. The music typically played is just, predictable, boring dance or nostalgic 80's music. I usually use the internet to discover new music but should I consider it ipod worthy, I'll usually go for either CD's or Vinyl.
I stopped listening to the radio years ago. Either I was in 8th grade or a freshmen in high school. So in 2010 around. I am 18 now and I might as well take the radio out of my damn car. I use the aux to play my music in the car. I use youtube to discover my hiphop gems or I go out to particular music stores and find vinyl and cd's. Cd's better anyways. The media today is corrupt and I am glad to see that I am not the only one who thinks this as I go through the comments. The radio is trash. Besides, the radio doesn't play new artist anyways. Their fans have to give them the recognition/hype that is big enough in order for the radio to play their music. So we as the listener for say, get these artist recognized. Then again ignorant and stupid people get the wrong ones recognized for whatever reason. Trends and they wanna stay "hip" so they wont look lame to their peers and etc. Idgaf about that dumb shit.
