Yes, I do. As a kid I listened to 77 WABC out of New York. That was when AM radio played anything and everything, Not like "bob" radio does today.
Top 40 radio was the only thing worth listening to at that time.
In case anyone is wondering, That was in the late sixties, early seventies.

uh, is there any other kind? unless there's a sporting event available only on FM, we're exclusively AM, and one of our favorite stations is CBS out of New York, 880, we think, fun even to follow the traffic reports... remember once wanting a score of some obscure basketball game in the Metro area, and 880 had it...

Yes, both AM and FM radio. I don't listen anymore, I use my commercial free MP3 player in the car and home today. Radio is obsolete and no longer necessary since the introduction of smart phones. I get my news, weather, traffic alerts, etc., from the smart phone and enjoying my commercial free MP3 player.
