Public radio fanatics, listen up (although you already knew this:) A new study shows listening to the radio makes you happier than watching TV. (My professional experience validates these findings, too, in a big way.)
“The report said: ‘Radio is chosen as a lifestyle support system, to help people feel better as they go about their daily lives. Rather than the peaks and troughs that people have claimed to experience with TV and the internet, radio provides a consistent environment themed and shaped to suit the listener’s needs at any given time of day, and one that is generally upbeat in tone.’
Except wait, when you read the fine print, it appears that it’s the Radio Advertising Bureau who commissioned the study! How bogus. I personally know that tuning out of mainstream media makes you happiest….
