Finding Radio Shows On Audio Books Websites

Aug 17, 2007
Do you have fond memories of sitting with your parents listening to the radio at night after supper? Well, now a new generation can make good memories of radio too! Just download a radio show from an audio book website to your iPod, Mp3 player, or computer and you can be listening in minutes

Radio went out of fashion for quite a while. Our society has fallen in love with television and now the internet threatens to take over TV as more and more shows and movies are available online. Radio was for all intents and purposes replaced except with the early morning commuters who listened to talk radio. And the problem in the past with talk radio has been that it was attracting only a certain demographic. Not all people have lengthy commutes and many people don't have jobs where they are able to sit and listen to radio. The ironic thing is that one of the forms of media that has helped to replace radio, the internet, has now brought new life to it.

Downloading radio shows from audio book websites is now more popular then ever. You can download a copy of an old radio show like the Jack Benny program or your favorite morning radio show. You can then listen to it at a time that is convenient for you. This practice is especially popular in Britain where 45 million Britons are now listening to radio. It is believed that this number is due to the popularity of iPods and other mobile audio devices.

The BBC has even brought some criticism upon itself for planning to make available on the internet all of its radio broadcasts upon demand. Radio shows are receiving a revival thanks to the ability to download them from the internet and take them with you. You can download all kinds of radio shows and listen to the broadcast from your computer or transfer it to your iPod or Mp3 player.

Radio might have seemed like a thing of the past but Mp3 players, video players, and even cell phones are giving radio a revival. Check out a website that sells audio books and you are likely to find radio shows for download as well. Now you and your family can share radio together by downloading family radio programs from the internet and listening to them in the car or on the computer. It's not too late to give your children the gift of radio.
