Why the internet killed the radio star

Radio

Living in a world where tech is impacting our lives, the internet is our go to and offline people are dubbing the new age kids as millennials. Obviously things are going to change, it’s simply a matter of at what rate and judging by the proof of past events, it won’t be long until we have fully transformed into a modern era, one where a scenario is bound to play out which involves the death of the radio. So what will be the cause of death you ask? Well according to researchers of the internet there are a number of reasons and a number of death scenarios. Wrap your head around it if you will, check out why they say the radio will be a thing of the past in the next decade.

Online applications

There is an app for pretty much anything these days. You can access the casino industry via the online portal NoviBet, you can play games which have been moved from console gaming to online gaming, you can visit your photos in a cloud and you can access all media sites from online news applications. One of the biggest dominating genres of applications is music apps. Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify are only some of the applications you can install to your smart device and sign up for premium membership to get rid of all those annoying ads. Too bad we can’t get rid of the ads on the radio!

Selective music

Not everybody appreciates teen pop music and while some may think its punk rock, it’s really just a teen trash, which lets face, who really likes baby metal? If you do, chances are the radio won’t even play it as some channels are dedicated to the latest releases or a genre of music. So why not just flip between stations? Why should you have to when the internet has made everything more convenient? Why search through countless radio stations when you can have exactly what you are looking for streamed from your phone to your car via your app.

Digital innovative features

If you are using a music app such as Deezer, the clever application immediately picks up on the kind of music you are partial to. You can then stream this via a feature the app delivers, playing all kinds of music similar to that of your very own personal selection. The innovative creation of such applications leaves listeners feeling impressed while learning about new music in tune with their demands. The radio doesn’t offer this same kind of feature.

Although the radio is still a very big part of some people’s lives, there is no doubt that the use of the service will eventually phase out and podcasts will probably be the closest thing you get to radio, until of course a zombie apocalypse occurs, then we will indeed need the radio but not for music, so again, who really believes radio will survive the Armageddon it is about to face?
