You're right, of course Bill, and what practical value would such transmissions provide that could not already be shared via audio files over the internet ?

And using "best of" recordings to occupy a frequency is in the same category as mustering AM on a given frequency, to claim ownership, maintain a presence, etc. 

What I was thinking, however, is the nice sound of a bunch of AM QSOs during events like the AM Bandwarming Party and Heavy Metal Rally. And, those times on 75m and 10m when conditions were SO good that they deserve a second listen.

We were arrayed politely every 10Kc or so, no complaints from incompatible modes, drawing pleasant attention and participation from others wishing to take part.

THAT's a classy way to maintain and further AM's presence on any band, anywhere.

But yes, you're right, it needs to happen real time, and if you miss it, you miss it.
