I'm a fan of anything that doesn't include the mindless repetitive babble that we have all seen too often on TV. The radio always allowed us to put OUR take on the drama/comedy. It was much more personal.

WAMU in DC has been running reruns of old radio shows for years on Sunday nights between 7 and 11. I also have them on CD, cassette and vinyl.

i like listening to baseball on the radio. something about it makes it different than watching it on tv. i listened to most of last years World Series at work on the radio and caught the last couple of innings on tv, when i got home.

I like watching and playing baseball, but the radio is only good for me if I'm in the car or doing something.

I can listen to old radio shows, but listening to baseball while I'm not doing anything else makes my mind wonder.
i just like sometimes listening to baseball on the radio, because it reminds me of spending time with my grandfather working in his woodworking shop and he always listened to baseball on the radio. he hardly ever watched it on tv.

Ax, your granddad sounds like a man after my own heart. I really only watch TV during the Christmas season.

he passed away a few years ago. when he and my grandmother moved back to Indiana about ten years ago, i didn't get to see them as much when they only lived about 50 miles away. he did love baseball!
