I don't have a receiver/tuner on the first floor of my home.  For 'at home' listening, I've switched appliances completely.  I have a 'media center' PC connected to speakers on three floors.  I listen to either WBZ's stream via radio.com, or Dennis and Callahan via WEEI.com each weekday morning.  I don't use my smartphone as a 'transistor radio', but do, from time to time use an I-pad and a small Bose Bluetooth speaker to listen to both traditional and internet only 'radio', both live and time shifted.

I don't use Pandora, or Apple radio, or I heart radio.  I do enjoy 'reelradio.com' and pay a subscription to listen to it's mobile streams so I-pad and Bluetooth speaker is an option.  

In the car,  my listening pattern is similar to Donna's, though some listening also takes place on an I-pod classic, plugged into the car's entertainment system, dedicated to podcasts of many NPR shows (Marketplace, Wait Wait, This American Life) that I download weekly and 'binge listen' to on longer rides.

I work 'in radio', but long ago felt that radio became an audio content business (though it really is the ADVERTISING business) heard across many different delivery systems.
