I love listening to music. Especially at work (and the car!). A quiet place is a boring place (or a place to read).
I've brought some radios to work to listen, but the radio stations in the Dayton area leave a lot to be desired, and the radios themselves were cheap and lousy, so I listened to music on line. Only problem is that it would cut out on a whim and I'd have to restart the station. Kind of a drag.
Then a new radio station appeared in Dayton, playing the type of music I want to hear. So using the Barnes & Noble gift card I received for my birthday, I ordered a GOOD radio (one that plays my iPod, too – and is an alarm clock to boot). I received it on Friday. Plugged it in. The radio was great. And the display was digital (so I knew I was getting the station I wanted). I was all set.
I bring the radio to work, crawl under my desk and plug it in. I turn it on and – NOTHING!
Apparently our building is heavily fortified or I'm just too far away from the new station (there is a 22 mile difference between my home and my work) or the new station doesn't have a strong signal. Yes, I'm bummed.
But I can listen to them on-line. I guess it beats listening to a Los Angeles station (I'm in the same time zone for one), and they do play the music I want to hear. Unfortunately, they also cut out for no reason whatsoever. Oh well. What's an employee to do?
If I ever get sick of the on-line radio cutting out, at least I can listen to my iPod. Provided I keep the physical radio at work. My bedside alarm clock needs replacing, but I like the red display (and this new one is greenish). We'll see.
