  •  Unless terrestrial radio goes digital (4+ / 0-)

    it will die a not-so-slow death on its own, no help from Clear Channel required. "Kids" under 35 have mp3 players and smart phones, they do not need terrestrial radio for their tuneage, and they get their news on FB and Twitter. Their smart phone is their radio which they use to listen to Kagro in the Morning on Daily Kos Radio. Yes. I went there. But, it's "radio" like this that is the future, becuz smart phones are the new transistor radios of the 21st century that make it possible.

      that most of what is dished out over the radio is sheer, unadulterated crap.

      You do have a good point regarding Digital media and the proliferation of online music/talk, but I personally think that analog still has its place.

      I mean, people still play acoustic guitars even after the electric was developed.  Sometimes the medium is just as important as the information provided, IMHO.

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.
