Hello Steve.  I am absolutely NOT an advocate of smashed broadcast audio, 
but we should recall that radio operates through two imperfect mediums...the 
transmission path where natural and electrical noise beat up the signal, and 
the ambience in which the receiver is located, where the station must 
sometimes fight for attention.  (The automobile might be an example. )

Compression is a tool used all the time on radio. In fact radio may be a 
prime driver of the trend.
