The past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category (except Japan) as of Oct 7

Why don't we savor 'simple listening' on the sidelines of travel?

The following list is all past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category, only local radios – no long distance MW nor SW services (In my opinion, they're too obsolete) , except heard in Japan, amounts to no less than 27 countries/regions and six continents.
