I only listen to the radio while I'm in the car. Years ago I would play music while I did things around the house but my husband is retired now and has the TV on morning to night. Sigh..... morning to night.
I only listen to the radio in the car.
I have this elaborate set up linked to my new TV however my son who installed it, died a few years ago so I do not really know how to change it to radio.
He did write it down but I am worried if I go off the TV i might never get TV back again!!
So i do not listen to the radio -also living alone, I value peace and quiet a lot of the time.
I have the radio on in the car always. It helps to pass the time and it gives me a happy mood when driving which you need with some of the drivers ( and pedestrians) on the road. Occasionally I will either have the radio or a cd on, especially when I do the house cleaning. Singing and bopping to my favourite songs and before I realise it, all the bathrooms,and laundry are finished!!!!
My job entailed 'listening to voices', for 45 years', 81/2 hours' a day, so the LAST thing I want to hear 'off duty' is voices'!
For that reason, I bought a top-notch quadraphonic sound system, to listen to various instrumental & orchestral records, tapes, & CD's.
In the car, I've a battery-run portable radio/cassette/cd player. I tape my cd's, & play them in the car.
Very rarely do I listen to singers, if so, it's usually Roy Orbison, Michael Crawford, Josh Groban, Eliazabeth Jenkins, Sarah Brightman,Teddy Tahu Rhodes, David Hobson, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Andrea Boccelli et al.
I'm extremely 'picky' whose voices' I listen to! But whomsoever they are, I do really ENJOY listening!
