Listening to music in the car has been a favorite past time of travelers as long as radios and cars have existed, and while many believe that recent technological advancements might have reduced this practice, a passion for music and radio on the road remains.
In this latest piece on MusicThinkTank, Giles Kirkland offers up some numbers revealing radio's remarkable enduring popularity as a form of entertainment in the car.
"More than half of the study participants indicated that the radio is their preferred source of music in the car. It might be the question of being too lazy or not having enough time to tap into the touchscreen of a smartphone. Over 1/3 never change the station and 44.2% constantly look for the best music by changing radio stations."
