A Dramatic Proposal

Folks, we don't need HD radios or analog radios either.

Regarding David Noble’s article about why accessible radio standards matter (Jan. 14), I completely agree with the author. However, I want to take it further.

What really needs to happen is, the FCC needs to ban HD Radio and instead require all radios on the market to be Internet radios, whether boom boxes or small portable radios, and these radios as well need to be accessible.

Folks, we don’t need HD radios or analog radios either. That is radio that is antiquated, because whether using analog or HD Radio, you still have stations that fade out when you get out of range. With internet radio, you’re never out of range!

So, if anybody from the FCC is reading this, get rid of analog and HD Radio and require all radio stations to be streaming on the Internet, and require all radios to be Internet-ready.
