Remember ‘Video Killed The Radio Star‘ from far away 1979?
These days it seems that video content is ubiquitous.
I seldom bother to put on a CD any more, though my house is full of them.
Still less frequently will I dust off an LP and frighten the cat with a blast from the stereo system I bought with my first salary, way back in 1988.
Instead I just type whatever tune I fancy into Google, and there it is, on YouTube, ready to listen to.
That said, maybe video didn’t quite kill the radio star!
I still tune my computer in daily to listen to BBC World Service radio (good for news, sport, and interesting documentaries…)
And the rare occasions that I drive anywhere, I look for Rai Parlamento on my car radio.
So, maybe radio has it’s uses after all.
Which brings me to today’s advanced Italian listening exercise, an extract from a radio program, of course. With questions to answer, and a transcript you can use to check your understanding.

Or here for the video version (only joking, that’s not really a link!)
But if the C2 listening series is too ambitious, don’t fret.
