Local non-syndicated radio is awesome. I have some very good stations
in my area. The news is more relevant to my area than NPR, but NPR is
great for news around he world, and the people operating the stations
are people I see around my community. If radio is done right, it is by
no means outdated. I personally like listening to my local stations
because it exposes me to new music, half of which is local and the
commercials really aren't that bad when they are from local
businesses. That is my 2 cents, I would love to see a FM receiver.
