July 10, 2018 at 8:43 am #183060 limegrass69Participant Short answer…NO Other than play-by-play sports and a couple of major market all news stations, I don’t think AM exists to anyone under 55.

The Westchester book doesn’t exist anymore. At least I haven’t seen one in a while. WQEW 1560 used to send quite a signal that way, day and night. That had to be at least ten years ago. And at the youngest, those kids in the all-important 6-11 sales demo are now high school or college age. Radio Disney, of course, has jettisoned many of their radio signals and gone on to concentrate on internet delivery. In short, children don’t even know what a ‘radio’ is today, never mind where or what an AM dial is.

Quote For one thing, FM is not known for having static. Charlie Brown was content with the static. And then there is the fact the strip is so old FM was not well known.

Not only are they rarely exposed to broadcast radio (AM or FM), they rarely use broadcast TV. In fact, the idea of willingly consuming live, linear content would be puzzling to them.
