Road trip 

You might not think that this was a fun way to spend a summer vacation, but it afforded me the opportunity to listen to the radio. If you play it, they will come.

Digital radio has arrived 

Clear sound, good content. Digital radio is a reality.

Stunted growth 

Already 10 years in the making, in-band on-channel digital audio broadcasting has promised to be the next evolution of terrestrial radio; an evolution that would carry the radio industry through the next 100 years.
