It’s the new year, and you want new music.
The question: Is it still worth listening to music on the radio?
So maybe you don't cruise around listening to Ryan Seacrest. That doesn't mean radio is irrelevant. Radio in all its 2012 forms (including Pandora and Sirius) is still introducing people to new artists. Without the college station that fed into my hometown, I never would have heard Smashing Pumpkins, and in a few years it'll do the same for some kid hearing the White Stripes. You can’t just rely on your own taste the time--it's boring. Let someone else do the picking and you might learn something. – Emily Van Zandt
