Hi Fred,
Great to meet you last week. Couldn't agree with your more re: need for great-looking radios - there are some models due imminently that'll fit the bill. Really fun and funky stuff... and some straight-down-the-middle models. Stay tuned!
Cheers,
Michele

I don't expect you to put this on your site as I didn't kiss you a%% like Michelle did but,

You said:

"But the bigger threat to broadcast radio is on the inside -"

Yes the biggest threat to radio is on the inside and it is ta da!: HD, iBlock, IBOC IBAC or whatever you want to call it. Know why? Because it is a diversion from the real problem... and that problem is: lousy, boring, old fashioned content. You think Rush Limbaugh in arguably better sounding HD is going to save radio, you think the same 30 classic rock tunes that have been playing now for 35 years in arguably better sounding HD in a sleek cool looking little radio will save radio?? Nope, don't think so, local content and undoing consolidation will save it, although it's a little too late, people don't really care what their radios look like, they care what comes out of them.

owner finance contract

According to RealtyTrac Inc.(a mortgage data company based in Irvine, Texas) the number of residential foreclosures increased 100% in the third quarter of this year. These are very sobering statistics when you think about 446,726 homes nationwide in some stage of foreclosure activity.
