110.) What do you think is the future of radio? I think people go through stages of life when listening to the radio. Most people will start out listening to top 40, but as you get older, you grow tired of that and need radio stations like KVSC to provide you with an eclectic mix of music and community that you won’t get on any Clear Channel radio station. Also, listening to radio over the internet is probably the way of future for radio. It’s the best way to listen to radio if you are somewhere far away from the signal.
