OK this radio looks for patterns it associates with music .. such as a constant beat. I mean - like -- all over the different stations. Then tunes to that music IF IT IS'NT presently playing music. Of course this mode is optional in the radio.

So when the music you're listening to finishes and the brain-dead DJ starts talking .. the radio thinks 'hold on .. I've got a 100bpm beat over on 'disco FM' I've known about for a few seconds .. I'll tune to that.

So you just end up with music. No DJ. Of course you may start listening half way through a song so it's not perfect but at least no more DJ.

Also you could program it to recognise things like specific BPM so if you're into certain styles of music it could make a pretty good guess at what you're after.

       Put it on a 3 second switch pattern. Go on. Do it.

       Great except a lot of dj talking is done with stupid grooves in the background.

       Should be possible to start recording the acceptable songs so they can be heard in their entirety., when the current song ends. Like a music capacitor.

       I use KCRW Eclectic 24 to manually load my Grooveshark queues. Not exactly an automated process though.
