Who has control of the radio ? 

I have never touched the radio ...i always leave that up to SO to do..i don't know why, probably because we have the same taste in music so i never have a problem with what he is chosing.

The other day he changed a song that i was listening too...so i jokingly switched it back.

He says to me ' hey...you are not supposed to touch the radio'.

HUH? 

He continues to say that he was brought up that the it is the driver's responsibility to 'entertain' the passenger ..that the passenger shouldn't have to pick the songs.

I just kind of giggled at him , and said 'well...that is a nice gesture to someone that doesn't half own the car , but its OUR car ..so you really don't need to entertain me lol". 

It got me wondering ...who controls the radio/CD player in the vehicle?

*EDIT : I should add that the steering wheel is also a remote to the radio..he isn't being unsafe or having one hand off of the steering wheel to change the station*

Technically it's the driver. But I dont care, if I'm listening to a song, don't change the dang station! That's just rude!

We listen to very different types of music (Me, R&B, Hip Hop, Country.  Him heavier metal and things like that).  So, the radio stays off, lol.

lol ...i know i was so thankful when i realized that SO had the same music taste as i did.

My ex ...had a little bit of the same taste, but not much..so it was a bit of a relief.

It just depends normally if he is in the car we listen to his kind of music because we both like it and he can't stand to listen to my music. There are times I don't care what he wants and he is stuck listening to my music because I said lol.

The kids do. Usually, but when he is around ibdont bother with my music because he doesn't like most of it. I don't mind his though, so we will listen to that when we aren't listening to kid stuff.

DH always drives, & he always gets control of the radio. I'll lower the volume if necessary, though. I don't drive if DH is available to drive me.

If we're just out and about we either talk or listen to something we both like. If we're driving for a while we listen to audiobooks.
The driver makes the decision but the passenger does the changing because it's safer.
