I keep one web radio in the stdio. we have a wireless set p so I programmed several of my world favorite stations.
NO BILL radio will not become obsolete becase even yo admit to programming its content. Yore confsing the content with the delivery system. MAybe we wont call it radio in another 10 years bt so waht? its still the same stuff.
If its only msic yo like, then most cable companies have an "HD" sond format bank of stations that play all kind of msic. I too decry the crappy phase pof contry msic we are into now.
Most of the rock I like is called "Classic" and I like several kinds of jazz and baroqe music (We have a baroque station too). We also have about 7 Hispanic stations, 5 rap and hip hop (Im not sre of the difference), several "World music" and "easy listening", Big BAnd, and music of the several decades starting with 1940's throgh today.
Also on this are several devotional and preaching stations if yo need to listen to the rev whatever preach about how you are doomed for hell.
On web radio I sally wold rather listen to CBC, some South AMerican stations , and India.
However, I DO think that web radio is replacing the CONTENT that had previously been the sole property of SHORT WAVE.
