Oh, I have no doubt that you are correct. But I think if WGBH/WCRB
were to make it known that an HD receiver would make it possible to
get the classical programming where they might not otherwise, a few
people might get them for that reason. I get the feeling that a lot
more public radio listeners have HD radios than commercial radio
listeners, especially in areas where it's been promoted by the public stations.
