exactly James.....and in those countries that use el radioceptor it refers to the equiptment itself....but the music is feminine ALWAYS

The reason why "radio" is used as a feminine is because it was shortened from "(la) radiodifusión", and then extended to the machine itself, which is how it is used In Spain and Argentina, but in other countries they have shortened it from "(el) radiorreceptor".

So in essence, it depends on the country whether it is "el" or "la".

It should be always feminine when talking about a radio station: la emisora Radio Uno.

Paul said:

Mira cuando hablamos de la maquina.....debe ser "el"......pero cuando hablamos de las programas usamos la radio. Me entiendes?

PaulAre you saying that if you mention the radio as a piece of aparatus, then you use the masculine definite article ie "el"

Far be it from me to challenge you, but radio is listed in Collins dictionary as a feminine noun.
