    I've got portable radios. There's a reason I never listen to them anymore.

    i personally think it's a good step forward.

    it'll mean new hardware for me though.

    Would it only be for the third generation iPod touch?

    I'm guessing you will be able to achieve your exact current state if such an app is ever released.

    For me the funny thing is; I stopped listening to the radio years ago but just recently started listening to AM news radio.

    True, which is why I'm not excited (I believe that was the question). But more than that, creeping feature bloat annoys me. I don't need my iPod to be a radio, or a camera (or even a phone for that matter). I don't need a speaker or voice controls or any of the other stuff that Apple is glomming onto iPods lately just so they can market a "new and improved" version. For my tastes just give me more capacity and a faster processor, and improve the Safari and music UIs.

    I don't need a camera or voice controls either, but an FM radio would be extremely useful for me to listen to news programmes during the commute to work.

    Everyone's needs vary, hence the need for a diverse range of features. If you want to go back to basics there's always the iPod Classic.

    I've got one, and it's still my favorite iPod. ;) For the music interface, there's no comparison with the touch.
