The question was phrased by the source as follows: "It is possible to listen to the radio on or via the internet. The broadcasts can either be those of radio stations also accessible through FM radio devices or of genuine web radio stations. Have you listened to any of these programs before?" (Translated from German original question: "Radio kann man auch im bzw. über das Internet hören. Dabei kann man entweder Radiosender hören, die man auch mit einem normalen UKW-Radiogerät empfangen kann oder man kann Sender hören, die ausschließlich über das Internet verbreitet werden. Haben Sie solche Programme im Internet schon mal gehört?")
