(KSL News) A new kind of radio claims to give you CD quality from your FM dial. It's called HD, or digital radio, and it claims to give you traditional AM/FM stations, plus a whole lot more.

Nicolaus Pinault, Radio Shack: "You're gonna get a clearer sound out of it; less static. And you're going to be able to pick up an alternate lineup."

That means if you don't like the song playing on the station you're listening to, you can choose a different song without switching stations. HD radio also will give you more info along with your music, including traffic and stock information sent right to your receiver.

You can get HD radio without signing up for a contract or subscription, but getting an HD receiver will set you back about $200.
