Over the years of radio listening and employment in radio I have always been one of those people who love great audio processing. The other day while my fiancée was running errands I listened to some of the stations here in central South Carolina. Both IHeart and Cumulus owned stations had similar processing which was muddy, pumping, and just plain bad. Not sure if its like the good old days where the PD can decide how he wants his station to sound or if It is dictated from HQ. Alpha Media stations had a much better sound which was pleasing to my ears. I did not feel fatigued even though I'm not a Hip Hop fan. Alpha also has a really good sounding Hot AC station which is sad because it was last place amongst the Nelson rated stations. The processing is very good and fits the format perfect. I lament back to the good old days of analog processing was amazing. The best processing I've ever heard was from September of 84 til Oct of 86 when 99.9 Kiss FM (WKSF) in Asheville NC was a hot rockin' flame throwin' top 40 with balls to the wall audio. You wanna talk about audio that popped this station did it. They had a monster signal to boot being able to be picked up in 6 states! What was or is the best sounding station you like to listen to or did listen to? It is to quiet here so let's see if we can get things rolling. Sent from my Z932L using the SatelliteGuys app!
