Will AM And FM Radio Really Be Eliminated On New Cars? The rumor is that some auto manufacturers will begin phasing out AM/FM. A GM Spokesperson said that isn't the case. I totally think this would be a horrible idea at this stage. It doesn't seem like there is any benefit to nixing it to the manufacturers. I can't see them saving more than $20-$30 on a car by doing so. Even though many people are listening to their iPod, or Internet Streamed service or Satellite Radio, there are WAY more people listening to AM/FM. Plus I'd imagine the Radio Lobbyists would pony up some money to the manufacturers just to prevent this. In fact perhaps this is just a whole scheme to make that happen. What are your thoughts?
