Yes, but not the the poverty local public stations. And more likely
because I hardly ever hear music on the radio that is worth hearing.
I grew up on KDFCm KKHI, some good local rock stations in the 60s
(KEWB, KYA, etc), and then KMPX and KSAN and MOR KFOG, not to mention
KJAZ which was truly the world's greatest jazz station until the
idiot owner killed it (I have over 100 hours of their last two weeks
on air!). I think there may be one bay area commercial station worth
a listen this century, KFOG, and they are too much rock for me now.
The Cedar box sounds interesting, but I doubt MP3s need it and the
real radio stations could afford it...
Thanks for the info though!

You might not have heard a record scratch because many stations
installed the Cedar "black box". I don't know the official name for
it but I saw a preproduction demo of the gizmo. it hooks between your
station and the transmitter and learns and remove noises, clicks etc,
real time. Because it is constantly monitoring the audio it changes
the algorithm as it goes. It has no controls or operator input
capability, quite amazing.
