Closed-Captioned HD Radio by NPR

Radio was never a top priority for captioning mainly because I don’t sit in the passenger’s seat very often. I’m not about to read radio and drive. What I do want is the ability to see the song and group singing it so I know what songs I like. I know lots of radios do that, but I am driving a 10+ year old car with an outdated radio that shows only the station and time.
PC Magazine also reports on captioned radio.
However, streaming radio through a service like RadioTime.com would be cool as you can get it on any computer — so no danger of reading and driving.
Gizmodo reports on captioned radio from CES 2008.
