Visual Radio is coming soon to the US: Radio giant Infinity Broadcasting is working with HP to bring a kind of Net-enabled FM radio, sending information such as album art, concert dates and buy-this-album buttons alongside broadcasts.

The broadcasts will be aimed at a new generation of FM radio-enabled phones, as well as the digital information carried over cellular phone carriers’ airwaves, rather than on the one-way FM broadcasts. The companies hope to turn the service into a new advertising and revenue source for traditional radio, which is facing increasing competition from satellite radio and Internet Webcasts.
