Radio in its most Q1. form is dying around the world and more rapidly in US. It’s due in part to more strict FCC rules regarding what can and can’t be said on American airwaves, but the medium is also a victim of expanding technology, and death due to Q2. is a good thing. Despite the added costs, people are Q3. to the various satellite radio broadcasts—in part to hear personalities like Stern, but also in order to get a clear signal with minimal advertisements, a selection many times greater than conventional radio, and more niche-market stations for people with more defined tastes.

Stations are no longer as worried about playing to the masses, thereby diluting their content in an attempt to Q4. everyone. The content, then, is better, the listeners are happier, and people get less worked up by Imus-like personalities whose soapboxes aren’t as high as they are on regular radio.

Broadcast stations have other sources to thank for their Q5. place in the media, too. As the Q6. of the iPod has increased, people have become ever-so dependent on their personal music-playing devices. The ability to carry one’s personal collection around, accessing old favorites and recently downloaded hits at the slight shift of a thumb, has replaced the frustration of waiting for your favorite radio station to play your song of choice.

It’s a bit sad to see the radio go—countless memorable historical moments were Q7. . via the little box with the silver antenna—and it will surely have a place with other Q8..

But change is a good thing. And when our Q9. as a society change—when we begin to expect more from the Q10. , in which we hear our news or our music—the transformation is wholeheartedly welcomed.
