CLEAR CHANNEL PULLS THE PLUG ON SOME HD RADIO STATIONS -- After conducting a survey of 340 HD2 stations to determine their programming needs, the folks at Clear Channel have dumped a number of their HD 'Format Lab' stations due to a lack of demand. According to the Clear Channel Format Lab website, 46 HD stations are left to carry, including stations with names including "Standing Room Only Showtunes" (Broadway, theatrical and movie musical selections), "Pride Radio" (a channel for the Gay community), "JokeJoke" (all comedy, all the time) and "Wack Comedy" (Seriously. It's called "Wack Comedy").
