It takes me at least an hour each way in my drive to and from work each day. I usually listen to BBC Radio 2 for a mixture of chat and music. However, if the traffic gets really heavy I tend to switch it off to concentrate better in what's happening around me.
Never cared enough to do it. I can't listen to JJJ, the station I used to love, with the kids in the car anyway (too much swearing) and haven't found a music station I prefer. I got to like just chatting with my husband and kids while driving better.
I love listening to music in the car. As soon as a commercial comes on I change the channel so I can have continuous music. If I can't get songs I like, I switch to CDs. Never found radio in the car distracting, I think mostly it just becomes background noise.
Absolutely. Even on the train, I can't stop watching YouTube videos on my phone despite the short commute into the city. And at the office 3 days a week - I even need music to keep me challenged atm...
I always made my children listen to my music although they did introduce me originally to U2 and Queen. Now they are well and truly adults my grandchildren listen to my music in my car. My music includes many songs from my parents generation and before to moat modern music but especially Beatles, U2, Peter Garrett and Queen. My children have very wide ranging taste which I put down to their experience listening in my car.
I do. I change stations constantly. It stops you getting in a rut and it is amazing what you come across. I've heard a song about Brahman Bulls on Country Radio, lots of interesting interviews with people I'd never heard of on ABC or on 98.9 Indigenous radio, really great Christian songs on 96.5 and golden oldies on on 4KQ. Sometimes I listen to 4EB and try to guess the language or Classical music if I'm stressed. If I'm miserable I need Pink ( I keep an emergency CD in the car). The only thing I can't stand is Sports and Triple J. My favourites are Triple M, 96.5, 97.3
I also borrow random CDs from the Library if I'm travelling.
Either or depending on what mood I am in.
My daughter and I used to have singing competitions in the car to see who could sing the loudest. The winner was the one who could get the driver in the next car to notice.
