Steely Dan Will Be So Disappointed

Do you remember this awesome song?

FM, no static at all, and it's going away in Norway:
The death knell of FM radio has sounded in Norway, but fortunately for listeners, that doesn't mean radio is going away. Instead, Norway is shifting to Digital Audio Broadcasting, a system already used by half the country, Ars Technica reports.

The country is the world's first "to decide upon an analogue switch-off for all major radio channels," as puts it. The end of FM is due on a rolling basis in 2017.
What will a Norwegian Steely Dan sing about?  DAB, no analog at all...

Steely Dan is one of my all time favorites. There's a Dallas cover band, Naked Lunch, that plays at a wonderful dive called Lee Harvey's in south Dallas. If you ever come here, you should really see them. They've actually played for Steely Dan and the band said Naked Lunch may sound better. Fun times. No static at all.
