QotD: iTunes Radio

Question: How often, if ever, do you listen to the "Radio" in iTunes?

My Answer: I used to listen to it at work (@ Apple) quite frequently, but I never bother anymore. I have 10,000+ songs of my own to listen to. I should, though, to discover new music.

  1. No, I'm generally not that good, or interested I guess, in listening actively to the radio. I have 12,000+ songs in iTunes, and like to listen to _albums_ more than a single song here and there.. My preferred way of discovering new music is through friends or places like, and through reading reviews. I think I have a bit of a prejudice against radio, that most channels play too much music that I don't enjoy very much, but I admit I haven't really spent much time lately trying out different channels.

  2. I do, sometimes, but I also enjoy Pandora. After you provide Pandora with a few musicians that you like it then plays music that is similar.

  3. I used to listen to Radio off and on about a year ago. I really would have liked to use it (or Pandora) this summer, but The Great Corporate Firewall said no.

  4. I hardly ever listen to iTunes radio only because I can't really think when there's music in the background. I need silence for meaningful thought. I don't think very much as a result. 🙂

    Since you mentioned it I think I'll check it out again.

  5. Every day. Specifically kexp. I highly reccomend Best Ambiance on Monday's from 6-9pm, Wo' Pop on Tuesdays from 6-9 pm, DJ Riz on Wed and Thurs from 9pm to 1am and saving the best for last "Larrys Lounge on Sundays from 3-6pm. Definitely check it out. All times are pacific.

    I also listen to NPR in the morning, but the only streaming station in my time zone is in LA and since I'm in Seattle the traffic reports and weather always trhow me for a loop! You think I'd know by now...
