I tried an email about this a few weeks ago, but I imagine with the hundreds of messages that must flow into Thom's show each day (hour? minute?), it probably got caught in the flood. In the meantime, the problem persists.
I listen to the show on XM and via the web so I don't know if others experience this or not. Maybe it's just because I'm an old radio person myself (actually true on both accounts...old and...), but the Thom Hartmann Show theme and rejoin music (not to be confused with the bumper music discussed in another thread) are incredibly low in volume--like 20 dB below program level. Because of road and engine noise, when listening while driving this basically sounds like the radio has gone silent.
Maybe it sounds fine in the studio and control room, but I suspect there's something-something that needs to be adjusted.
Does this bug anyone else? Can the Powers That Be fix this, or is this a "Volume Units Austerity Plan"?
