Quite often, mostly the local KEXP or the not so local BBC 1 or 2.

Yes, a few times a week while using my computer at home. I even listen to some stations broadcasting over the air in my area that I could tune an ordinary radio to.

Yes, because I live in an area with lousy FM reception because of hills. I listen to KFOG because I can get it in my car but not the house. Same with NPR and KALW.

I also listen to Pandora.

Yes. I listen at work occasionally. I find I work better when I can listen to some music through my headphones. I have stopped doing it very often since I found out our downloads are monitored and listening to the radio can push up your download levels and then the boss has to have a talk to you. Since it was the finance boss who told me this, I felt I should moderate my use. Not that my use was problematic.

I use it to listen to what was my favorite station when I lived in the USA. I love it!

I listen to Pandora or something like it every day at work. The software I use at work takes up the computer’s CD player at all times, so it’s really my only option.

Yep, NPR, BBC, KCSM, Pandora, and MLB radio among others, get some play, usually while I’m exercising. It goes in cycles but typically, between them, they get somewhere around five hours of play a week.

The SO does. We have an internet radio in the kitchen, and it’s always on when we are cooking and cleaning up. Since he started learning French, he found a French news station that helps him practice understanding the spoken language.

Sure I do. On occasion. Not every day. But when I need to.

No, I never have, but the my Hubby does. I prefer the relative quiet of the day, but hubby has music on all the time.

I have an Internet radio and I also listen to the radio through my PC. 90% of my radio listening is over the web.

Yes, I listen to BBC a lot and RadioLab sometimes.
Would you also consider Pandora. I use that often.
