Home Radio Road

Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

Same radio?

When I was a kid we had a tubed table radio in our basement, with at least a six inch speaker. I (sadly) have no idea what ever happened to it, but I'm betting that if I compared that radio with my cheap Sony clock radio, the old one would sound better.

But even today, when I switch one of my AM equipped tuners, or my GE SuperRadio to the AM band, "just to see", it sounds pretty bad, even compared to what many feel is today's compromised sounding FM.

Is AM worse than it used to be? Possibly. Or maybe we've just grown accustomed to the sound of FM.
