    Not really. :-)

    On Saturday mornings sometimes I tune in to a live show that
    I've performed on as well. :-)

    Podcasts are my thing...

    I don't listen to radio stations at all. It's all the same stuff on the stations that I'd be interested in. There's really no "oldies" any more...that's now stuff from the 80's, which to me is new wave and
    synthpop stuff. 80's is definitely not oldies.

    Also, if I do listen to the radio, it's the same songs. You'd think
    Soft Cell had one song. Culture Club had one song, The Eagles had one
    or two songs. Variety has gone from radio.

    Agreed. AM & FM radio is my area are always the same 10 to 15 songs played
    in different orders on different days with way too many commercials thrown
    in. For awhile I subscribed to a year of SiriusXM satellite radio and while the lack of commercials was a breath of fresh air, it was just more of the same. The same songs played in a different order on different days.

    I have been listening to Paul Hayton's TotalFM out of New Zealand lately, there are no commercials and the variety is pretty good. Plus you get to hear a kiwi accent thrown in every now & then which is always a bonus. :)

    I live in Dallas, a metro area with over 7.5 million people. You'd
    think there'd be variety. An Eagles song was on one channel to I
    changed to another...already had the same Eagles song playing. Changed
    to another channel which was on ads...so I waited and then what...they
    played an Eagles song.

    That's when you know it's time to give up and just pop on a CD.

    While I can see the advantages of using subscription services, you're
    basically just renting music, you pay ever month but you don't own
    anything at the end of it. I'll stick to ripping my CDs to mp3s and
    playing on the computer, through Alexa or loading what I feel like
    listening to onto my phone and play it in the car.
