What the OP is looking for is not Replaygain but Dynamic Range Compression. I've never wanted to use it so I can't cite any software off the top of my head, but Wikipedia has a list.
Hi,we are trying to achieve the same sort of homogeneous loudness radio stations have, with all sort of music genre sounding equally the same. Is there some particular hardware/software setup we can easily replicate to get this kind of result?
If you want a software audio player with dynamic compression, use foobar200 and install foo_dsp_vlevel.

The effect of foo_r128norm is more like that of Vlevel, i.e. it seems to adjust the volume (slowly) over time as opposed to compressing the dynamics to make it sound louder. It sounds obviously radio-ish. The calculations will probably be much different (from Vlevel) though, and a fixed 3 sec. sliding window is [or was?] used.

Just don't go nuts with the latter, despite being one of the better tools of its kind it reduces audio quality by design.

It is not very clear what the OP is looking for, IMO.
