Swap shop radio was a complete and total game changer for me. I discovered KSID radio swap shot from a friend at work. We are not very social there, and mainly listen to music. There are times, though, that we do get to have awkward small talk around the Black and Decker coffee maker.
I had been getting sick of normal talk radio programs. Their jokes started sounding listless and bland. I knew that my friend enjoyed the same kinds of programs I did, and asked him what he had been listening to lately. That was when he told me about swap shop radio.
Now, I love to swap and shop. “Tradio,” as it is sometimes called, is any program where listeners call in to buy, sell, or swap items live on air. It is like the radio equivalent to the classified ads. Radio Swap Shop has gotten me a new bike, a new computer screen and other things that I had only been vaguely intending to get, but unable to for lack of a good deal.
If you want a change of pace with what you listen to, or if you are in the market for a second hand item, then I would definitely check out swap shop radio. Are there any readers who are already listeners to swap shop radio and would like to discuss it? What kind of items have you guys purchased over swap shop radio? Discuss in the comments.
