Answering a question asked two years ago here, but just because I feel like it (and someone else may have looked at the previous page and said, hey yeah what about that?).

AM is commonly used in North America. At this point, music stations are generally on FM - better sound quality - but AM is still full of things like news, talk and sports. One of the best things about AM is that the signals carry hundreds of miles (or more) at night. For that reason, certain strong stations are designated as "clear channel" stations and everyone who isn't has to go off the air at sunset so they don't interfere. Most radio in the US is local, so picking up distant AM stations means you're getting some other city's local news and talk shows and so on. I will occasionally play with the AM band when I'm driving at night just to see what I can get or for particular stations (like Radio-Canada, in French, from Toronto), and have listened to "my" baseball team, on its Philadelphia station, as far away as Columbus, Ohio. (And have picked up that station in the Chicago area, although not during baseball season.)

AM is really a niche market in Europe, I'd say 1% or less.

There are extremely few stations, right?

There is a road in West Virginia where you see a thing that looks like a large pot hole. The pot hole is only two feet from the side of the road in the dich of the road. But the catch is that when you walk up to the pot hole it is really a 60 foot deep cave opening pit. Where the pot hole is 60 feet straight down into a massive cave system.
