The Streaming Jukebox: How Internet Radio Keeps the Tradition Alive

Oldies Internet RadioThere is nothing quite like being able to travel back in time by listening to radio shows that play old songs.  It is like having a trip down memory lane–not just your memory lane, but the whole world’s memory lane; it’s a whole new experience for those who are too young to have heard the music of the past in real life.

Today, it’s getting harder and harder for those in the older generations to listen to old music.  They turn on the radio and all they hear are new songs that they cannot relate to or even understand.  Sometimes, only one day per week is allotted for playing old music, and that is usually on a Sunday.  There are also stations which only play old music late at night; many of the people that want to hear that music are already in dreamland before the late-night DJ’s even clock in for the night.

80's Internet RadioMany people—and not just senior citizens—enjoy the vintage life; they enjoy things that from the past like antiques and old music.  But it is not that easy now to get a record of your favorite albums or even find a station that plays them, sometimes you have to plunk down a lot of cash just to get the record that you really wanted.  But all that hassle and expense is a part of yesterday.  The technology that we have now makes it possible for people to enjoy old music anytime, anywhere.  The Internet is your streaming jukebox, and it’s the answer to any question you have about finding old music.

Unlike traditional radio stations, when it comes to Internet Radio’s streaming jukebox, you get to choose the kind of music that you would like to listen to.  So if you would like to listen to old music RIGHT NOW, no one is stopping you.  You do not have to wait until Sunday or 12 AM to listen to old songs, all you have to do is log onto your favorite online radio station and you can listen to old music right away.  It is as simple as that.

That is the advantage of using streaming Internet Radio.  You do not have a DJ that gets to decide what to play and when to play it.  You make the decisions and relive the old days at your own pace.

The biggest advantage of Internet Radio is that it can be accessed anytime, and if you want to purchase the music that streams for free, that can easily be done.  Most Internet Radio sites include links to purchase the songs that they play via an online music retailer such as Amazon.  Once you purchase a song and download it, you can play it whenever you want, transfer it to a CD or put it on your MP3 player.  There are many ways for you to keep your connection to the music of the past.

You no longer have to worry about your favorite old music disappearing over time.  With the Internet working as your own personal streaming jukebox, you have a venue for listening to old time music on your own schedule.
