For a short time around 1973 or 1974 WBCN was broadcasting in
a kind of "fake quadraphonic" which seemed to involve sending
a certain range of the audio frequencies out of phase, which
sent those frequencies to the rear speakers.
It sounded a bit strange in regular stereo, like there was
some phase error, and it sounded somewhat tinny in mono due
to phase cancellation.
I never had a "quad" receiver to check it out in it's glory.
I wonder if any of them ever show up on eBay? That's now about
the only place you can get an AM stereo these days.
