Anyone listen to Music on a FM tuner anymore?

I’m not referring to streaming, I mean an actual FM turner. I haven’t had a turner for at least 15, probably more like 20 years. I had a high-end one that went bad years ago and even then I hadn’t really used it in years. Just wondering if anyone still uses one and why?

Added info: back in my college days there were lots of reasons, some great DJ’s in the New York City area and sometimes a live concert broadcasts that were great, but those times are long gone, as is most of my hair and my 32 inch waistline.....I’m not trying to judge anyone for still listening to music on a FM tuner, just asking for the reason to do so.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season.


only in my vintage Chevy C10 truck that has no CD or BT radio only AM/FM bands.


Yeah ,in this world of digital streaming, and a lot of it in hi res, I could never justify using a tuner radio. It really makes no sense anymore IMHO. BTW, I’m also in the NYC area and have found tons of good music from WFUV — Fordham University’s station I think @ 90.7 on the dial.. It’s an awesome station. Then I go find it on Qobuz.

I guess I could be termed a Luddite since I do not stream. Three FM tuners in daily use a McIntosh MR71, Linn Pekin and Mitsubishi DA-F20. FM programming in my area is not exactly stellar, so listening is relegated to one classic rock station and one marginal jazz station. No classical, unfortunately. Boy do I miss KUSC. I tried to quantify for the OP as to why exactly FM is till enjoyed, but…

I see my original post missing the last portion of my reply-

Yes, if one isn't streaming, FM wherever you are likely has a PBS affiliate for Classical/Jazz if that's your thing.

Listening to a R&R station isn't worth the  investment for a proper tuner.


It's also not FM or Streaming, but for many it's both or all ... CD, LP, FM and Streaming...
