If and when satellite radio becomes as common as AM/FM in cars then it could
easily be Chicken Little time for terrestrial radio.  Look at the success of
syndicated radio (Rush, Imus, Stern) where New York has become, essentially, the
radio "home town."  This could be accelerated by a big radio name or two taking
the big leap to satellite-only, as Stern had hype recently, as well as major
market "local" options.
