Synonyms of "Radio" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre I just turned on the radio e I have just turned on the radio ?
A: there is no difference but "I just turned on the radio " sound more natural
Q: Qual é a diferença entre I heard it on radio e I heard it on the radio ?
A: there are some instances where an article is not required. To be completely honest, as a native speaker I don’t even realize when it is or is not necessary, I just know when it sounds wrong 😂 but “on tv” is correct.
For example: we say, “I’m watching tv” or “let’s watch tv” or “I saw you on tv” and those are all correct. But it would require an article if you were to say, “I bought a tv” or “I broke the tv”.
Why? I’m not completely sure. English is a terrible language with many contradictory rules and I admire anyone who is learning it 😂
Q: Qual é a diferença entre on the radio e over the radio ?
A: "on the radio" is correct
Q: Qual é a diferença entre on the radio e in the radio ?
A: 'On the radio' means the sound coming out of the radio or on the surface of the radio.
e.g 'The football game will be on the radio tonight.'
'There is paint on the radio now.'

'In the radio' means inside the radio.
e.g 'I could here a strange noise coming from in the radio' (not the radio noise itself)
'I put a new battery in the radio.'
Q: Qual é a diferença entre I've decided "to listen" to the radio program every day starting this April. e I've decided "listening" to the radio program every day starting this April. ?
A: With that phrasing, "to listen" is correct.

"Listening" can be used like this: "I started listening to the radio program every day". If you want to use the date, you can say "I've been listening to the radio program every day since April".

When you use the phrase "Starting X", it's usually for a future change -- "Starting this April, I am going to listen to the radio program every day." In other words, it's not for something that you are already doing or have been doing when used in that context.

I hope this helped! :D
