Music lovers generally have a soft corner for radio channels, as they provide a way for them to be pleasantly surprised with their selection of songs, and moreover they are free. But most music lovers have a few favorite channels, depending on their tastes. Classical music lovers and country music lovers do not listen to the same channel, unless of course, there are some people who are fans of both genres.
Now that everything is done on the internet, from watching movies to interacting with people, there is no reason why radio lovers should not follow suit. There is a huge number of radio channels online now, many of which specialize in distributing a certain kind of music to listeners.
