It will be a very sad day when they switch off FM. My tears will cause the Thames Barrier to activate.
Agree with the talk on Digital, one thing not to be confused about though, FM is analogue, but the music played is from a digital source. Only the transmission medium is analogue, so the same compression issues affect FM stations. It is all down to the bit rates and compression techniques used at source.

FM of course adds another dimension, bleed from other frequencies that distort the sound. Some mistake this for a feeling of warmth.

Digital is the future, the DAB broadcast will only get better.....
