42% Of Americans Prefer Radio For Listening To Music

Radio still rules the roost for a plurality of music listeners, with CD players and MP3 players trailing and the good old record player a thing of the past.

A new Rasmussen Reports survey finds that a plurality (42%) of Americans still prefer to listen to their music from a radio. Lagging far behind is the CD player at 25% and MP3 player at 14%. Young adults (45%) tend to use MP3 players more than their elders (22%).

Only a statistically insignificant one percent (1%) listen to music on a tape deck, and record turntables didn't even rate that high.
