Well, I don't know that I would get one of those due do the lack of programming. I've seen them though. Wonder if that station on the east coast is still doing stereo. I can't recall the call letters off hand, but the owner had a stereo rig, and caught the fever, playing oldies in stereo, going as far as to promote it locally. He got good feedback, finding a lot of cars had them. That was true through 2000. I've got one from that era, and it's just an excellent radio, stereo or not.
KBPS is a treat though. When I'm in range, I always take a listen! What I particularly like is the combination of the separation, and the AM style processing. Gives many vocal and acoustic pieces a great, in car, presence.
If you ever get the chance to hear a good talk program done in stereo, on AM stereo, there is nothing like it. Beats the pants off an analog FM, IMHO. Not having as many highs is a clear bonus on that kind of programming.
