How do I work the radio?
Driving home today I had a shocking experience. I don’t have any audio books on cd in my car because I’d rented 2 short ones in a row and one of them was really bad so I returned them together. And my mp3 player’s battery ran out because I leave it in the car and it was really cold today. That’s my assumption anyway, because otherwise I’d have to assume that Apple’s batteries are really poorly designed. (That’s sarcasm folks).
I tried staring out the window for a while, but I quickly got bored. No passenger to talk to. I thought of maybe calling someone on my phone, but it was 11pm eastern time, and I couldn’t think of anyone on the west coast I really wanted to talk to.
Out of sheer boredom I started looking at my instrument panel, and lo and behold, there’s a radio! I never noticed it before. Both FM AND AM! I bet I paid extra for that. I remember something called talk radio, so I dialed in to the top station on the AM dial (I mean touchscreen pushbutton thingy, not dial) and started happily listening to newsradio. But I must have done something wrong because the sound quality was really bad and I swear they kept repeating the same news stories over and over.
I tried hitting the FM button, but it was just music I didn’t like. Apparently this radio thing has gotten really hard to use. I’m sure I would have liked it if I could have figured out how to use it. It sure was simpler in the old days. Only 2 stations, both on the AM dial, one was country and the other was rock. Back then radio was great and I didn’t need audiobooks.
Or maybe audio books have spoiled me.
