"The great voices of radio's past were piped into tiny transistor radio's hidden under pillows across America. Today, not so much."

Maybe there was something worth listening to then?

Just sayin'.

I will still stand with using Frequency modulation on the am radio frequency. The police 2 way radios have used them for years. In the United Kingdom they use the same frequency as the US for CB radios but with much better reception. It is so much cleaner than AM even at the Low frequency of the RF carrier. It would be cheap & easy to change the transmitters & no royalty Licence fee to use FM. It would require a converter. But we could we did that for the digital tv & car am radios in the 70s

While the translator does nothing to fix the present technical problems of AM propagation at least is won't relegate us to a solution where we start out fresh with ZERO listeners, kill the present listening audience and wait for technology to reach the home consumer! At least they already have FM radios!
It is our own fault telling the public that AM is awful and not putting any formats on that the public really wants! Give them something that is NOT on FM and is unique!
