Whether that signals a demise in radio-broadcast rock music is probably premature to say, but it's clear that consumers have more options than ever for listening to music – especially in their cars. A Ford Focus, for example, has the capacity to play AM/FM radio, satellite radio, Internet radio, CDs and mp3 devices.
With so many choices, we wondered if people in Plainfield still tune into stations on their AM/FM radio. Brian Clauson, 33, of Plainfield said he uses a number of devices to listen to music in his car.
“I just like a variety,” Clauson said. “Sometimes I listen to CDs, sometimes the radio, sometimes the iPod.”
We walked around downtown Plainfield asking people if they still had the radio turned on.
