The radio is p. cool. I have a nice Sony home stereo system that gets AM and FM radio, though ironically I mostly use it to listen to sports (not music) because it's cheaper than cable and my local broadcasters are the best in the business. Plus, being able to passively digest the games while doing something else, like playing video games, is a nifty bonus. There's nothing like playing one game while listening to another.
Radio sports > Televised sports
Although I don't watch much sport at all on TV I'm going to have to agree with you about Radio sport > Televised sports. When you listen to the radio you don't get visual feedback from the match so the radio commentator has to captivate everything through words and (verbal)emotion. Its always quite nice when someone talks passionately about their job/hobby/sport that it almost makes me want to share the interest. Also a lot more tension gets build up over the radio, again because you lack visual feedback. What also helps is that when I listen to the radio I'm often doing something else (driving, working or behind my computer at home) so it feels like an addition to something useful.
I generally listen to music on the radio though. I listen to it when I'm in my car with company or when I'm at work. I don't play my own music in my car since most people I know don't want to hear metal, videogame music remixes or whatever I recently discovered. Radio usually plays songs which most people are OK with and since you're talking most of the time that seems the obvious choice. At work (both the office and part-time job) have set radio stations since the music is again generally OK for everyone and SFW.
As to what kind of music on the radio: I prefer classic rock or 80's and 90's pop music stations. This is the music I play in my car and luckily gets played in the warehouse at my part-time job.
