Although they have to do it as stations are scared of quiet and silence, boosting the quiet places in songs and compressing the louder bits.

I do it with the stuff I play on my shows as it helps my on air workload, so I don't need to keep adjusting the trim knob constantly, and the station output being a community station is not fully compressed, I personally feel it sounds better compressed as it goes out, much more power, but it's just my preference. You have more freedom to do more on a community station.

But, do you like the compressed sound, or the natural uncompressed sound, just as the music track comes.
