Why AM radio sound is so pleasent to hear and so situable for talk radio? My hypothesis is that its because it has only 50dB of dynamic range, unlike FM radio that is 70-80dB. So it overlaps much less with ambient sounds (low and high pitch) so you can pay attention easily to ordinary machinery sounds, phone calls, etc. AM broadcasts are aften equalized to be sound rich in the human voice frequencies, so it has less brain demand than FM's wider range. What do you think?

Listening to local AM radio stations over internet must be one of the most inefficient ways of listening to AM radio ever invented. Considering the battery drain, high CPU usage and temporary connection outages, and comparing that to a simple double AAA battery radio that can last for weeks providing loud audio on your broadcasts, there is absolutely no way to beat that. Solid technology that does one thing. Invent the internet and pretend to do everything with it us just stupid
