Umm. No.
It's a nice add-on.

For many users, it's a complete side-show.
I want to use it to listen to the news, listen live to music stations 
that I like, and may have competitions, or listen to new reasonable 
quality music, when I have no opportunity to download stuff to my phone.

I have a RDS radio in my car. I've never used it, as I don't live where 
traffic jams are common.

It's valuable if it's very cheap or free.
