Very, very seldom in the car. Even a radio is too much distraction when driving.

One glaring option that was left out-- internet radio, including the streaming (over iTunes, etc.) versions of local radio stations. That tends to be how I listen to KCUR, KPR, etc., when I'm at home or work. And I know that KAWR also intends to stream over the internet, in addition to the broadcast signal.

Very odd-- why are some allcaps allowed to go through, but not others?

I used to do this at work as well. Then they got wise to it and blocked all streaming audio and video. And we're not allowed to bring in any type of electronic media or media player - except for commercially produced CD's and even those have to be individually scanned by the security guy so it's not worth the hassle. Makes the day go by a lot slower.

At home, I always have something on - Pandora, Hearts of Space, Napster, Shoutcast, etc. Not sure if any of those count. I don't normally listen to broadcast stations that also happen to stream.

I listen to it at work all day long. I like having the background noise - drowns out all the other office noises. I switch channels every couple weeks. It seems like most stations tend to play the same dozen songs all day long.

Just while I'm in my car, however I'm in my car a lot.

Logging - hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me. If so, someone's having fun reading all of my LJW posts.

I stopped listening to KLWN after it was sold. The programming is not as good as it was.

Used to listen to KLWN alot but the conservative hacks they program are too much to take anymore. Turned em off a year ago and don't listen at all now.

sports out of KC or music
