Great information

Five stars for content
Volume variance is a problem, sometimes soft and need more volume on Dan and or Amy then the callers and interviews come in much louder.

DanTemp ,

Love the content fix the volume levels

Love the show. Listen to almost all of them and enjoy your fill in hosts as well. I often find it hard to hear because of the range of volume. If I have any noise in background I often miss things and have to go back to hear what I missed. I turn the volume up and then get blasted by the commercials (though there’re not many).
Great info that I can’t find elsewhere.

Original Gibby ,

Love the show but the audio…

Really enjoy the program but prefer the podcast over AM signal going in and out. The audio quality varies GREATLY between Dan, Amy, callers, guests and commercials. This does not happen on the Shawn Thompson show/podcast which is also locally produced.

Three stars is for the audio quality. Content is five stars.
