Yep, GM is so happy, they save 25cents a radio again. Why not install a Motorola AM CQUAM chip instead- no royalties to pay, and you can hear WION and CFCO in stereo?

The article describes HD radio as "rudimentary." Seems about right. :)

Man, for a second there, I thought it might actually go somewhere.

Tired of overplayed crap on CSX? Tune in to 94.7-2!

Tired of butt rock on Riff? Tune into 101.1-2!

Tired of 80s? Tune into 104.3-2!

Tired of bro country? Tune into 99.5-2!

It could have been great and really given FM radio a shot in the arm. Those formats you couldn't get on FM could be heard on HD radio. Fizzled out like a fart. Bummer.
