Audio can build great relationships – listening to digital audio for example is often a very personal experience, with most of us listening via headphones.
Radio listeners often feel that they have a personal relationship with the presenters; they feel that the presenters are speaking directly to them and any information they hear is trusted – in the same way that you trust your friends. It also means that listeners hear commercial messages in an environment where they feel happy, and ultimately they are then more responsive to the message.
