The Golden Age of Live Radio
Live radio is radio broadcasting live without delay. Earlier, before the advent of televisions, listeners listened to live ecouter la radio concerts, dramas, comedy shows and quiz shows live, just the way they do on television now. Much like the early print media which used to be read by the educated masses, radio used to be listened to by people from all walks of life -from the most affluent to the poorest of families. All kinds of radio programmes were provided by commercial organizations, both free and pay, and through several outlets. But these days, things have drastically changed. Today's radio is no longer a privilege for the well-to-do, but a common household activity that almost everyone can access.
Podcasting, or " Podcasting" as it is commonly called, is one method people use today to get access to live radio. Podcasts are compressed versions of live broadcasts that are available for download on the Internet. Podcasts are often available for free, but many commercial entities charge for podcasting. The cost depends on the length and quality of the podcast, although some podcast services provide free podcast downloads.
Online radio is another option that many listeners make use of. Streaming online radio enables subscribers to listen to a radio show as it happens without having to wait until the next day for it to be broadcast. Listeners can simply tune in and enjoy their favorite story, as their computer automatically plays the audio recording at that exact moment. This option has obvious benefits over live broadcasts, especially when listeners prefer to listen to something in their own time. Podcasts are a great way for individuals to listen to pre-recorded recordings which they can then play right after coming back from work.
