I still love listening to the radio. For a birthday one year, my Dad actually got me a radio, that looks old, but it’s got modern stations. I think you can hook it up to blue tooth, but I haven’t ever felt the need to that. I mainly love listening to the Radio while I’m taking a shower or having a bath. Yes, I will sing in the shower or the bath. Although no one has complained yet, they do ask me if I’m just talking to myself.
Some facts about the Radio:
- Guiglielmo Marconi is credited with the first radio transmission in 1896 but did not transmit a voice, just a signal. Radio voice came along in the early 1900s. The actual credit for the radio goes to Nikola Tesla who came up with the design in 1892 (Who recently “starred” on Doctor Who). Due to Marconi’s patents Tesla did not get true credit until around 1943.
- Radio has always been a “call to action” medium. At any given time of day 20% of people surfing the net are also listening to radio. Meaning that there is a good chance someone will hear about your business, if you choose to advertise.
- Radio is proving to be one of the rare mediums were the audience is not dramatically decreasing. They have a much more consistent audience. Which does make sense when you think about it. How many people listen to a radio station to and from their way to work? Buses will play a radio station, taxi’s too.
- Radio is generally about local news. So people feel more like the Radio and it’s presenters are speaking to them.
