    I can see the pluses and minuses, because FM doesn't transmit very far, but it's kind of dumb to remove it from the major cities.

    Maybe this will lead to a pirate radio movement.

    Many radio stations already broadcast via the internet. Better sound, you can listen to programs when you want and there are no issues with being too far from the station. This is the future of FM radio .

    Most people here use a DAB digital radio, anyway.

    No, well I for one, don't understand the DAB thingy.
    By the time I do it will be eliminated too.

    I listen to the radio on my tooth fillings just fine. Except when the taxi's cut in.

    As a self-identified Nordiphile, this is interesting. Thanks.

    I'm glad I subscribed to Sirius XM the other day. It's a little spendy but sure nice to have.

    Hmmm.... let's switch off now unduly redundant methods of transmitting information because it's a totally safe world now, and there are no existential threats or national emergencies any longer to ever be worried about again.

    Not good. Not good.

    I would not buy a new car that didn't have satellite radio.
    You learn to appreciate it when you're driving through those parts of the country that only have God or Country on the radio, and firmly believe that NPR is run by Communists.
    Not that I don't like a little Country on the radio from time-to-time.

    That's the reason.

    That's all they played.

    I kinda get it.

    But then again - how scary are Norski's ?

    Even glowering in makeup and singing like cookie monster - I mean - c'mon...

    Those Scandinavians are smart. They realized that if they abolished FM radio they would never have to listen to cheesy classic rock FM radio programming ever again.

    Redundancies of systems are an essential part of emergency and disaster preparedness and planning. The potential and actual aggressors of our modern world would love us to think otherwise.

    Well if I hear you right, we should also maintain trans and intercontinental telegraph wire instead of laying multiple fiber lines? A few well placed EMTs and we'll be drawing up a Pony Express anyways, I surmise. People are pretty resourceful. Radio broadcasting isn't going away--just divvying up the bandwidth more efficiently.
