From Anthony Baldwin: "...the generous bandwidth of national AM channels in the 1930s and '40s offered a far higher level of AM fidelity than we're used to today..."

Most younger people don't realize that the average AM station of the 1940s
sounded far better than the average FM station of the '80s.

It's not just available bandwidth, but also the current NRSC standards that require limited frequency response. I remember signing on WHA many mornings back in the early seventies. Before programming started we would run tones to determine if the transmission equipment needed attention. If we could not hear at least 12 KHz coming back, we were to report it to the Chief Engineer for action. Response better than that was frequently noted.
