Health Benefits of Radio Listening?

Dear Colleagues,

We would greatly appreciate your advice regarding any reputable studies on health benefits of radio listening.

Our recently published peer-reviewed study found that having a home radio significantly increases the chances of exceptional longevity:

Odds ratio to live to 100 years = 1.61,  P value = 0.003
(see Table 8 at page 313)
Vienna Yearbook of Population Research, 2013, 11: 295-323

We would like to put this new surprising finding in the context of other related studies.

Please advise.

Thank you, and looking forward to hear from you.
