Superhero AM Radios

What was your AM Radio as a kid? Mine was “Little Sprout” from the “Green Giant” commercials, I assume my mother won it.

It was pretty cool but my older sibling had an FM radio in her room, so i mainly just kept my door open so I could hear Black Sabbath.

    Never understood why kids toys always had AM-only radios in those days. Were there a lot of kids listening to classical music and the farm report?

    AM had top 40 hit radio, i.e., in Chicago…WLS AM, AM was stronger, FM was slightly underground-ish.
