Is anyone really LISTENING to radio?

Listeners get it.  You don’t feel a true connection to a medium if it’s not live and in the moment. 
Streaming music, owned music, podcasts – all canned.  They could have been recorded yesterday…or in 2019.  You can pause and rewind them.  Y
es, they can be entertaining, and in the case of podcasts, even informative.  But they aren’t live.  They aren’t in real time.  They aren’t connected to anything remotely local or in real time.
