What - have to retire the cat's whiskers and not be able to tune in 2LO on the wireless!? I hate the idea of all that hardware becoming obsolete. My beautiful Pioneer stereo equipment, which admittedly has to be slapped to stay on station, my umpteen cd players with different parts broken, the little blue transistor radio in the bathroom - this is ... oh, who cares? But people shouldn't be left high and dry. There should be a minimum number of stations kept going, the basics - especially for national and local emergencies.
