What do you use as a radio these days?

I'm looking for the AC plug for for my radio and it appears nobody uses radios anymore. Is the norm to use the speakers that connect to your iPod? Or use the music channels on the television? Or just insert your cd into the DVD/Game Console/Computer that you have which is connected to your home theater system?

  • We just use our computer! We have speakers that connect to it, and we listen to our itunes collection or www.pandora.com, where you "customize" your radio station.
    Kinda crazy, huh? The only real radio time I get is in the car.
    My dad still has an old box (probably from the 60's). It sits on our kitchen counter, and he listens to am radio on it. Someone's gotta have a cord! Maybe try a store more geared toward farmers and small-towners like Fleet Farm or the hardware store. Good luck!

  • Since I discovered playlist.com and limewire I haven't looked at my radio. There are just way to many commercials that interupt the music on the radio.

  • Well I have all these cd's still and don't feel like moving my laptop all over the place depending on my mood. I put the radio in my bedroom b/c I moved last week and I left the cord behind or something but its not here. I suppose I could just use the laptop or one of the music services!

  • Uhm, lol, I listen to the radio on an old boombox if I want the actual radio. OR I do listen to the music channels. Usually radio if I'm outside cleaning, music channel if I'm inside.

  • i use the music player on my computer (Amarok), Pandora Radio, last.fm, or Youtube!
    I have a CD player for when I go out but I don't really listen to the radio anymore, they don't play the bands I like!

  • I listen to the radio on my clock radio, my shower radio, and the car radio. In fact, I prefer the radio over my iPod! Here in northern VA I listen to B101.5......anyone else from around here listen to them, too?
