In the pre Covid when I worked in the office it was in an expensive and trendy ZIP code; most of my coworkers had privileged backgrounds. When my coworkers learned I listened to radio they kinda ribbed me because "radio is for poor people". Crazy huh? I think radio has a purpose. I've been listening to KROQ for like 30+ years because it's the best way hear new stuff and expand my horizons with music I normally wouldn't listen to. Oh and I listen to an 80's station too because I 'm crazy for 80's new wave. And a classic rock station when the other two don't have anything good playing. I live in Greater Los Angeles area I have found the radio selections aren't nearly as good in most places; I travelled a lot in the 90's and early 00 to find the radio stations across America were just awful.With only a few owners of most of radio, most of it is pretty boring now. I listen only ~15 minutes/week, when others are in the car. I listen to books in the car when alone (Thank you library and Overdrive). I'm not surprised that it's slowly dying.
