The annual BELOIT COLLEGE "mindset list" looking at the cultural touchstones for the incoming college freshman class this year includes the assertion that the Class of '16 "really (has) no use for radio at all."
The popular list, which lists facts about the world of teenagers as they enter adulthood, includes the statement, "Having grown up with mp3s and iPODs, they never listen to music on the car radio and really have no use for radio at all."
The radio slam appears among comments such as,"They have always lived in cyberspace, addicted to a new generation of 'electronic narcotics,'" "There has always been football in JACKSONVILLE but never in LOS ANGELES," and "They watch television everywhere but on a television."
