Hybrid in band on channel (IBOC) digital audio broadcasting (DAB) simultaneously with analog amplitude modulation (AM) has been proposed as a hybrid solution to digital audio broadcasting in the AM band. Adding digital transmission in the crowded AM band is a challenging proposition. To achieve FM like audio quality, an audio coder rate of 32-64 kbit/s may be required. One of the currently proposed hybrid IBOC-AM systems is 30 kHz wide. Severe second adjacent interference may occur in certain geographical areas. For coping with such harsh transmission conditions, we present a solution based on embedded/multi-descriptive audio coding with matched multistream transmission in separate frequency bands. With loss of one frequency band, the embedded system blends to a lower audio coder rate with still a better quality than analog AM. The non-embedded system without multi-stream transmission fails catastrophically causing a severe discontinuity in quality while blending directly to analog AM
