Good to hear the old call letters again but wtf!!!!
The audio is so smashed in this production.
I wonder if the station is going to sound like that on-air.
There is zero dynamic range.
It's all about being the loudest, baby!

I'm sure the on air sound is fine...this recording was from the online stream.

Fair enough but if a station is streaming on-line to get listeners, then the sound quality DOES matter.
Listen to some of the internet broadcasts from over-the-air stations and some internet only stations, good, clean and not super compressed and limited to s**t.
If you're going to stream, spend some money and do it properly.

Ok, just managed to get their on-line stream to play.
There must have been too many users earlier.
Listened to the 64k feed.
It's still over-modulated and very mp3 'ish" quality with a lot of sibilance and slightly hollow sounding on thinner material.
It's also very bottom heavy and they're pushing the mids pretty hard.
Again hopefully, they're processing differently for air.
But it is possible to get great quality "over the net" if you spend a few bucks.
