Well, first of all, I haven't heard that WEEI was leaving the band, just 
expanding to FM.  I'd guess there must be some places where the AM 
signal is the better signal.

As for reasons to tune AM, my car radio has six AM buttons.  Only two 
are set for local stations:  WJIB and WBZ.  Three are set for Western 
Massachusetts stations:  WNNZ, WPNI, and WHMP.  The sixth is set for 
1600, which is both WUNR and one WHNP, of WHMP's satellites.  WNNZ is 
public radio talk (WFCR tends to play classical music, though not full 
time), WPNI relays WUMB folk, and WHMP carries progressive talk.
