well maybe AM is ok for mono radio. but I can’t imagine hearing King Crimson or Moody Blues or how about some vintage material from The Move which was before Electric Light Orchestra. These Progressive Rock artist R extremely stereo demanding. In fact my friend and I have paid for some imported CDs because they have better fidelity then United States CDs. In the vinyl days Japanese pressings where the way to go that and slow speed masters. Progressive Rock is the most picky musical format on the planet and if your station is not hi fidelity you won’t get 1 listener I can bet on that. specially when most severe of die hard Progressive and album rockers I know will pay 7000 dollars for stereo equipment we’re talkingwell maybe am is okay 4 my now radio.

Specially when most severe off diane hard Progressive and Album Rockers I know will pay 7000 dollars for stereo equipment we’re talking XLR cable, separate power amp pre amp separate tuner separate CD player and sometimes separate mono blocks for left and right channel all with a special choke to keep the left channel from bleeding the right channel. Back in the day when I had money that was the system I ran. I also had KEF speakers. My tuner was a Rotel connected to a directional outside antenna. I could pick up a 10 watt FM station 40 miles away. Point being if I am going to capture an Album Rocker’s attention I had better be on FM. AM is fine for Rap because of the only thing that matters to Rap is bass. so you could play underground rap on AM and do quite nicely fore some it would sound better than FM because of the booming bass. But true music lovers won’t stand for mono believe me. AM would do better if the FCC forced manufacturers to put proper filtering in new receivers. Its why I was so Adam at about Micro broadcasting on FM. if regular broadcast stations had filled the need for Album Rock I would not bother. Its why im calling an Alliance for Micro FM Broadcasters.
