I see two problems with putting community/college programming on AM.  First
off, many college kids do not consider AM to be "real radio" to them since
most people in their age bracket are almost exclusivvely FM users.  Secondly,
the highest listened to dayparts for college radio are nights and overnights,
since most students are not in classes.  If the AM signal isn't very close to
campus, few students would listen, and interest in student-run radio could
drop off.
