Yes, I enjoy talk and music radios. Lately, I have been listening a lot to MyTalk107.1 here in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. It's a talk/gossip/life station. Mostly, I like it because it's funny and light hearted. We also have a show called Garage Logic that airs on ESPN1500 and it is funny.

I love my local NPR station and I listen to it all day at work. I love the Diane Rehm show - I usually learn something new from it every day.

There is an Old Time Radio Broadcast that I listen to at work on the internet. I love the old Groucho Marx shows. They also play the Shadow, Dragnet, Lum and Abner and a lot of other shows that I had never heard of.

the only talk radio I ever got hooked on was the original Don Imus and Charles McCord show over 30 years ago. Some of those skits were priceless. More comedy than talk...and nothing like Howard Stern. I wish I could hear some of those routines again.

I listen to a lot of NPR/PRI programs and LOVE the BBC World Service.

One of my favorite programs is a local public broadcasting program called Think Out Loud. They discuss social, political and news issues relevant to the Northwest. I really enjoy the local Arts & Lectures program too. Recently they have had Salman Rushdie and Malcolm Gladwell as guests.

However, I despise Garrison Keilor--someone needs to tell that man that he can't sing!

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I love Car Talk, but, sadly, it's all reruns now. The brothers retired last year.

I used to listen to the radio whenever I was in the car. Years ago, I had a 30 minute commute that sometimes turned into 45 minutes or more. I listened to all sorts of radio programs.

Now, I rarely listen to the radio.

I have a station I sometimes listen to in order to practice my listening skills for Spanish. I listen to a few things sometimes online but mostly I listen to programs through iTunes. Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me is one of my favorite shows. One of my favorite episodes is an old one with Chris Paul.

I don't listen to music on the radio, that's for the iPhone.

Driving, I listen to NPR and love everything on there, having a special fondness for Car Talk.

Resolved in 2014 to remain below 120!

I'll watch the Braves games with the sound off and listen to the announcers on the radio if the game isn't on TBS. Love my Braves announcers, and network TV (or ESPN) just isn't the same.

when I'm traveling, I'll find the NPR station and see what's on. I love "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" and "Prairie Home Companion". NPR also has some great interviews.

there are some local morning DJs that I like. I really do NOT like the syndicated shows that they play. One of the Atlanta stations is playing a morning show out of NYC. Sorry, there is a world of difference between NYC and ATL. I want local!

At my old job, I listened to NPR programs all day. Way back when, we used to have dueling radio stations. Walking around the office, you could hear NPR, WEEI (sports station) and even Rush in the afternoon. lol. Today, I'll pull up the NPR website and listen to their webcast because I don't have a radio at my desk. now that I work in a more confined area, I can't blast the radio. So, I have to use headphones.

I do enjoy listening to the radio. I should start listening more often again. I need to grow brain cells. LOL !

As a kid, I fell asleep in the summer listening to the radio broadcast of Orioles games. I still prefer listening to baseball games over watching them on TV.

I also like listening to the BBC world service. It's news from all over the world and picks up lots of important stories that the US 'news' machine ignores.

I love to listen to the radio for Penguin Hockey games, yes the TV shows the plays but there's just something I really like about the guys who call the game.

I also like to listen to "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" and "Car Talk" on my local NPR radio station.

I'm not too big on talk radio programs like sports talk or political babble......too much rage.

Do you like listening to the radio?
