Every 500 meters along the trail there is a loudspeaker blasting 96.7FM all day long. How to tag?

No they are not sirens.

PA systems in Czech villages ("obecní rozhlas" or "místní rozhlas" in Czech) could be a similar map feature. Every day (at some places they only play at weekends) at a given time they start their broadcast: they play with a song followed by local news. However I'm not aware of these systems being tagged.

Yes, lots in Taiwan too. Every few blocks, for occasional community announcements. Hmmm, one form of radio tower or public address system or loudspeaker...

Long ago I remember visiting Besse(-en-Chandesse) and encountering tinny music echoing in the streets.

And how about these supersized anti-Communist loudspeakers? How to tag?

I guess I'd go for man_made=loudspeaker and use description= to describe the broadcast.

It depends whether you want to tag the single loudspeaker (then I would go with the tags proposed by @jmapb ) or if you want to tag the trail, I would use something like public_address_system=yes on the way or route
