Add the ability to listen to multiple stations with separate volume controls by routing it to the different speakers -- I got music on my left, traffic reports on my right

Silencing a specific speaker, directionally http://www.extremet...-big-brother-future

       I'm still kind of skeptical ... but it gets my bun.

       (imagining conservative talk radio on one speaker, public radio on the other, and the car imploding as the speakers are annihilated and converted to pure energy)

       Hmm, I shall try this with some headphones... before I can vote on it...

       Done something like this, driving at massively illegal speeds betwixt CA and AZ....CB radio cranked up loud with the squelch set so it wouldn't pick up anything further than a mile or so, and the radio tuned to good music.   

       When the truckers would announce the whereabouts of a police car, the CB would blare over the sound of the music. Saved me a couple of tickets that way.....

       I tried to do this with headphones, but wasn't impressed... Listening to talk radio in one ear and rock in the other wasn't too great.   

       [normzone] is on the right track on how this idea should be approached.   

       An RDS equiped radio that didn't completely turn off the music you were listening to would be fantastic! That way one could get valuable information and not miss their favorite song that is playing.

       The problem with RDS tuners is that it's only one tuner, so they can't listen to two stations at the same time. But some radio's have two tuners ...
