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.
