In morning drive time, my local AM station does traffic & weather every 10 minutes. So, yes, I use AM radio daily.

Yep, still use it. Home of the only oldies station left in the Nations Capital. Yes, the radio scene is extremely lame here in DC. Probably the worst of anywhere I have traveled.

Perhaps if the question was rephrased:

Do you remember cars that had a radio that received AM only?

I do recall parents' cars that had a radio that only received AM, and that FM was an extra cost option... That, or get the no-radio option that didn't have wiring for the speakers. The intention being to buy an aftermarket, of course.
