It's interesting that you say this, as it closely mirrors my
perception.  However, many broadcasters still believe Arbitron when
they say that overall "usage of radio" has actually increased.  (I
personally find Arbitron's methodology so dubious as to require large
quantities of salt taken with everything they say.)
