So not only did I get my iPhone 3G, I upgraded the firmware on the iPod Touch.  Leo Laporte of TWiT just tweeted this:
AOL Radio on the iPhone is a killer app. Broadcast radio should be very afraid. CBS stations excepted - they're all there.
So I pulled the free app and tried it on the iPod Touch.  Four local FM and a AM station were found.  No NPR, but JACK is there, ESPN Radio's there (I didn't know we had a station here!), and WHFS.

In my Canmephian docs, I had envisioned that bandwidth was so large that radio gave up and streamed to the planetary Internet, with various cafes having dedicated repeaters to save the bandwidth (because it's finite).  AOL Radio is but that next step.  Broadcast radio is dying.
