When you will hear the word radio, instantly you will also have in mind music. That is because most of the time we can hear music when the radio is on. Many people turn to the radio when they want to listen to music and it has been the practice for a long time that it became a habit. People have been used to having their radio around so they could listen to it. Even if television is present, they have a different purpose and so radio still rules.
There is a radio station that could focus on news and the other is for songs and so people could just switch between the two when they like to listen to song or news. We have known many singers through radio as in some places they could not afford to go to concerts and it is not available also in their area. That is why the only way is to the radio. They could also have a countdown on who is the most played songs.
Until now there is the radio that has existed a long time ago and they just sometimes change ownership but their frequencies stay and the programs they have been going strong. Radio stations increase and only a few close down or stop their operation. Even if there are competitors on the internet but they are maintaining the audience and presence they have. It is great to still turn on the radio and listen to the voice of the DJ or host.
