Radios have been extremely popular since the early 1900s, but not with the millennial generation. Sure, they grew up with radios, and it used to be the only way to listen to music or the news while driving. But as millennials came of age, technology improved to give us more control over what we can listen to, instead of the radio choosing for us.
This radio is now obsolete. Certain broadcasters such as Larry King and Howard Stern began streaming their stations on television and YouTube for a growing audience. Larry King Live was one of the most popular stations on television in the 1990s and early 2000s. Many now own a Bluetooth device, which allows them to listen to whatever they want on their smartphones and in their cars.
