(First off- very pleased to see many new posts here after not visiting for a while)

Some of the recent posts have extremely high volume levels with clipping, generally 8 to 10dB higher than the norm of previous posts.

For example-
0162 Mental Health Keeping Mentally Fit
Your Chance to Live: Earthwatch
Holiday From Rules?
Check . . . And Let Me Know
At This Moment
Drug Abuse- The Chemical Tomb

I realize it is difficult to manage this in a large collection. I've been using a reference file for many years now that I use to set a reasonable level in new files. I can generally keep everything within about 3dB using this technique.
