Actually, it's recorded on 8mm videotape in PCM stereo. Unfortunately,
the rest of the broadcast chain isn't all that great, so it doesn't
sound as good as it might.
KINK-AM (nee KGW) 620KHz and KEX-AM 1190KHz are also AM-stereo, and both
have much better sound quality, if the programming fits your style...
Also, for those in the Portland area I have spotted the SRF-42 (Sony AMAX
compliant AM-stereo walkman) at G.I. Joe's (local general merchandiser,
for those not in the area). Previously it had only been spotted at the
"Sony Only" store.
