If the radi station has phone lines, they should be able to get something like
a T1 or fractional part. Much more reliable and more bandwidth. Or look into a
microwave or satellite link. I don't think you will be able to compress a
radio signal enough to fit over a dial line without a lot of loss. You would
need several lines multiplexed together for a decent sounding broadcast.

There are many point to point links that will cover 40 miles (65 km).
I don't know how far you have to go.
