I've become fond of podcasts for my nighttime listening, but Angelo will take live radio over the podcasts:
I'm not feeling this at all. I think the shared experience of listening to (or watching something) live trumps any convenience a podcast can offer. I live in the Washington, DC area and have some good radios. I can find something of interest to me on the radio almost 24/7, with a few exceptions. Weekend mornings are sometimes lousy, with paid programming (and not even GOOD paid programming). Sometimes, late nights aren't great locally----but at that hour, I can pull out a good DX machine and find some good programming in other cities. I do understand the huge choice in podcasts, but for me, a podcast is an exception of something I really want to hear----while the rule is live radio. "Shared experience" is what makes the Super Bowl so important----and events like the moon landing. "Live" is king.
