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.

And they had MUCH better AM radios as well! Consoles usually had 10" or
12" speakers. My E. H. Scott 800-B is admittedly MUCH better than average
(it cost $1600 in 1946...more than a new Chevrolet...!!) but puts out 25 watts
of power into a coaxial speaker with a 15" bass driver...!
