RDS can give time of day, notice how it says "FM radio RDS+pilot CV" so 
the 19 kHz pilot tone is used in conjunction with RDS.

The danger in that is that RDS time of day setting may be bogus, since 
some broadcasters does not guarantee to steer it even if it happens to 
be correct most of the times. The traceability of the pilot tone may 
also be bogus. For common view it would kind of work.
