How do you listen to music? Maybe you plug in your cell phone and let Spotify curate a playlist for you? Or, perhaps you prefer listening to a satellite radio service like SiriusXM? Regardless of what your preferences are, more than likely, you're embracing the digital age with your listening device.
However, if you're old school, enjoy more lo-fi listening or nostalgic, next time you want to jam out, turn the radio dial on, and you may be surprised at what you find.
