nicholas: And yet:

'In the UK, 45.3% of all radio listening hours by the second quarter of 2016 were through digital platforms, with DAB making up for the majority of digital radio listening (71%),[4] and 55.7% of UK households claim to have access to a DAB radio set.'

Digital radio in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

According to Rajar, for Q2 2016, DAB has 32.2% of listening (with a 44.8% reach), plus 8% for online/apps (with a 19.3% reach). FM is on 54.7%, with a 74.9% reach.….pdf

We are still listening to FM a lot (and why is it perfection?), but digital, in one form or another, is gaining, with all digital only 10% behind FM. Considering just how many FM receivers there are, we evidently do want DAB or other digital.
