This list is no longer completely accurate. It is a good guide anyway. I originally did this up on August 9, 2002. I am putting this on here, September 8, 2006.
For those who don't know, in the U.S. "Medium Wave" and "AM radio" are the same thing.
The reason I make note of "Art Bell" ("Coast To Coast" program) is because I don't like to listen to that program, and wanted to avoid it. It seemed that when I was making this chart (and similar ones), "every other" MW station in the country was, "Art Bell", ESPN Sports, or some other sports talk station. Much of the "variety" of programming has gone from the MW stations in this country. Two of my favorite stations are WGN in Chicago and KMOX out of St. Louis. Believe it or not, both of these still retain "local" programming at night.
Some of these have probably changed call letters and or formats by now. Some of the "standards" like WGN and KMOX have not changed their call letters or frequency for the better part of a century. Others, change everything on a regular basis. In fact there's a "new" host to "Coast to Coast" now. It isn't always Art Bell. This program may not be on the same stations as I have listed here.
Please bear with my abbreviations. Some of them are "obvious". Others, such as, "local inter." are a mystery even to me. Wait a minute, I remember now, it means, "local interferes"-- a local station interferes with this one.
"CBC French" was easier to type into the chart (and get it to fit) than to type "Radio Canada in French".
I don't get all of these every night. Some I get best on cloudy days or evenings. Others I get during storms. I get some of these during the day if the weather is "bad" enough.
