In my country, we only have one station that plays classical music, and to be honest it feels great to hit that button and to listen to a totally different sound. I understand classical music is far from being popular, even so, just one radio station seems too little. Do you have classical radio stations in your country?

I don't think we have any radio stations that only plays classical music. But we have radio stations that plays classical music every Sunday, well actually most of our radio stations here do that. When I was younger, I always listen to the radio and I love it every Sunday since I get to listen to the classics. They play music from the 70's to early 90's if and that was several years ago. Nowadays, the only music they play during Sundays are music that were released during the early 2000's.

Well, we have tons of different radios in Portugal and in Lisbon, and we have one radio specific for classic music, called Antena 2. We have another one called M80 that only gives music from the 80's and the 90's, so it's actually pretty pleasant to listen to those parts of my past. :) It just shows me how old I am. :)

We also have a station like that and I like listening to that station most on rainy days. It's very soothing and it calms my road rage a bit. I think that for a driver's safety, there should be more classical music because as studies have shown, music can alter the mood and actions of a person. The cause of many accidents have to do with stress. Classical music is known to be soothing.

With the onset of modern age music and equipment the authentic classical music is losing it's importance. The number is declining both in terms of performers as well as listeners. In your country you at least have one radio station that solely plays classical music , But in my country we don't have that either. All radio channels air modern Bollywood music. Classical music is played only for about an hour and that too very early in the morning.

Yes the local college operates a classical station and it plays just classical music,and I leave it on all night so its very soothing to the soul and ears at times. Classical music is very restfull and good for relaxation as well -also its great for stress. They have performances recorded from all over the country from time to time and the show is called Performance Today-and its quite interesting sometimes.

Well, at least in your country you got a station that plays classical music. In mine we have none. For one to listen to classical music, they have to download or buy compact discs. It is sad especially to a classic lover like myself. I am really hoping that I get to hear someone forming a radio station or concerts where classics can be played.

I still have to find a radio station that plays classical music all day. But I’ve heard classical music being played on some radio stations once in a while. I don’t exactly remember the title of the classical music because I am not well versed with classical. I just remembered Rhapsody In Blue which I think is a genuine classical music. It was popular here in the 1970s and until now it is played on the radio. I got to know the title because that music was used by an airline here for their tv commercial.
