There are now wi-fi only radios made by RCA, Grace and Sanyo. I got one for 
Christmas. Great sound. 15,000 stations from all over the world. Free. 
Nobody needs a stick in the mud any more. Something great, and wonderful, 
and mysterious died this year Kevin. But something great, and wonderful and 
mysterious was also born this year. I can't help mourning the death...but 
the birth is so exciting. Dick Summer
