Norway is intent on carrying out its digital radio transition, listeners or not. I wrote about this two years earlier: Norway says “Goodbye, FM” It seems that their minds are made up, because
Norway’s parliament voted in favour of switching off FM radio after hearing it would lead to a greater choice of radio stations, as well as clearer sound.
Now where have I heard that before? I know that this is in the heart of Socialist Europe, but could this be what is in store here? I wonder how much longer the US radio stations will survive with shrinking revenue and lack of entertaining programming.
One bright spot; I have been thoroughly enjoying the unintentional humor of NPR’s (National Public, not Radio) “AHHHHH, TRUMP!” coverage. The Albany, NY outlet has really outdone themselves in this regard.
On a personal note; I have been feeling the urge to write more, so stay tuned!
