Long car trips can be tough on radio shows. Other stations encroach and static starts to distract from the usual reception. Sometimes you can listen through the static for a while, but it gets frustrating. If the program is a familiar National Public Radio show or a ball game, maybe you can move the dial and hear the familiar sounds and voices on another station away from the static. Sometimes you lose it for a while, but find it again on another station farther down the road, hopefully you haven't missed too much. Sometimes you just put in a tape.
