Surround Sound Radio

ok so I have been on an AM stereo kick of late probably due to some guilt that I did not pay attention to it when it was alive and I had the equipment to listen and did listen but I was more of an FM fan.and took it somewhat for granted.

Anyway I was looking around the internet and found this clip where the station 1630 KCJJ in Coralville, IA  does a
test in AM Quad and if you have a surround sound receiver you will hear the playback in quad. I tried it and it works but you have to use the correct settings. The right front channel is weak but otherwise it is a discreet multi-channel mix. They play tracks by Chicago, Lighthouse and Walter Murphy. The announcer does not like Lighthouse.

AM Quad on KCJJ 1630

Not 630 but 1630 ... that's in the expanded band (1610-1700). Actually fairly easy to hear at night given the only real competition on 1630 is in Georgia. Not a bad mostly music station.

Copy and paste error which I have corrected.

Yes I heard it in the car a few months ago but they no longer broadcast in stereo and sadly no more quad tests but if you have a surround sound system  hooked up to your computer and want to hear what AM quad sounds like, the clip is worth a listen.
