BizarreMan: dnrtfa: What's the point?
unlikely: AM Radio is safely in the hands of insane mouth-frothing right wingers. It doesn't need saving, it needs quarantine.
BizarreMan: Clear Channel
Infobahn: I want my country back!
Branch Floridian: It still puts a smile on my face when I can pick up my hometown radio station (KMOX 1120 in St. Louis) in my car from over a thousand miles away. Only at night or early morning, but still I think it is pretty cool.
styckx: What use is the AM band really? It's notoriously shiatty to get reception with and a cat can interfere with the signal.

Salmon: I thought they were reallocating the frequencies into cellular communication?
oldernell: BizarreMan: Clear ChannelThat once meant something good. At night you could listen to "clear channels" everywhere in the nation. WLS, WSB, and many others were the only ones allowed to broadcast after dark on those frequencies. They often played music you couldn't get locally. Yeah I'm old, but I remember when preachers once burned R&R records. When I was stationed in Germany we constantly listened to the pirate radio to hear what we wanted. Same thing with Texas Radio.
nekom: I'm a hipster, I only listen to longwave. And not the standard frequencies either, 209KHz out of Mongolia. It's pretty obscure, you've probably never heard of it.
