There is actually so many things that I want to write about. It’s hard for me to pick a topic to blab on about, but the one thing that’s been on my mind this last week has been the radio. Is it just me, or is listening to the listening to the radio is more annoying and less entertaining? I am big music fan and I love to listen to music whenever I get into my car. Lately, I’ve just been disappointed. In the morning there is just so much talking. To me, it’s just not that entertaining to hear people talk. Sometimes, it can be funny. But most of the time, it’s stupid and the people who call in to participate, are so ridiculous. They are also always selling something. Isn’t that what all the commercials are for? Now we have to listen to a pitch about diet products in the middle of a show too? All I want is to turn on the radio and listen to music.
When they do play music, it seems like it’s the same 10 songs over and over again. What’s really irritating is when I change the station, and the same song is on. There is so much good music out there, why do all the stations have to play the same stuff? I wind up getting sick of a song that I really like. Or, a song that I cant stand winds up stuck in my head. I think it’s sad that you have to pay for satellite radio in order to get rid of all the nonsense – most of it at least. My solution is a $70 dollar cord that plugs into my iPhone and my cigarette lighter turning my phone into a radio station that has only the music I like, no commercials, and only repeats songs that I want. It’s not the greatest. It’s hard to find a clear station, especially in a big city. My phone has to be in a certain place to get good reception, and I can’t use the controls on my car stereo to change the music. But to me, it’s still way better than turning on the radio.
