Which do you prefer?
I'm a music person. I can enjoy a good film (and even some of the bad ones) but fundamentally I'm a music person.
I can sit down and listen to an album from start to finish in silence, enjoy it, and 'soak it in' in the same way many other people only enjoy TV and films.
Maybe some people need the visual stimuli, such as Mrs Fubar. She cannot just sit and listen to something. She either reads, or types on her laptop, or gets bored and falls asleep.
Ultimately, I'd rather sit with headphones on and listen to a play on the radio than watch a dramatization of the same story on TV. Paradoxically I find it more involving.
