Also the problem of no stereo signal is probably with modern music,
there is not much difference between L and R anymore, just a single
channel of mass produced noise, so since the're subtractive, silence
is broadcast on the L-R signal, not like days past when Pink Floyd
would fly you though space on both channels!

Yes, I recognize that a lot of modern mixing leads to almost no stereo separation. But this is a classic rock station. I would expect the really-old stuff (old Beetles, for example) to be mono, but stuff produced in the 1970s and 1980s you'd expect to
  have good stereo separation.

Ironically, the *advertisements* have better stereo than the music sources!!
