Over the past months, we have discussed many topics of mass media and the history of each.
Some of the best memories of my childhood was jamming out in the car to the radio, and I always loved history so when the two came together I found it extremely engaging.
Up to now, my favorite has been our discussions on radio. Even though most would consider radio a dying medium, I still found it the most interesting because of the impact radio has played on our society and for the whole world, for that matter. I don’t think it will fully disappear for quite some time but it’s definitely slowly dwindling as technology evolves.
Radio stations also broadcast latest emergency news such as AMBER Alerts and weather alerts.
Today, I find myself and other millennials prefer to use their own devices, such as cell phones, to stream songs from the internet. The downside to this, at least for me, is the amount of time it takes while driving to set that whole process up. Sometimes, I’d rather just turn on the radio and drive.
Something that I actually found on my own while studying for the radio test was the website archive.org/details/oldtimeradio.
Thats URL will take you to a page where they actually have just about every old radio show available to stream online.
