    Re: unique doubt

    'to the radio'.
    You can say 'to radio' but it is incomplete and sounds it.
    'the' as the definite article is used with a noun in most circumstances, but there are times when we leave it out. There is no hard and fast rule, it is all a manner of speech.
    In using 'the radio' (instead of that/this radio) we can be referring to a particular radio set or just radio in general.
