Last time I was in the area and bothered to check it out, it was just
as awful.  No legal IDs, either.

Keeping the license alive...

Yes, but none of them prohibit stations from broadcasting a
poor-quality, distorted audio source... after all, modern rock
stations do it all the time :-) .  So long as the transmitter output
meets the technical requirements, they're well within the rules.  Who
knows, someday the FCC might even actually care enough again to
enforce them!
