Our conversation today features Andrew Shearer, President of Royal Broadcasting to talk about the significance of AM radio, its role in emergency management, and the potential threat of it being phased out from cars. Andrew passionately defends the importance of AM radio for emergency alerts, community service, and information dissemination. He also gives a bit of history for how and why AM radio stations exist. 

We discuss the challenges faced by AM stations, the essence of local community service in radio, and the impact of FM radio vs. AM. Andrew explains the legislative support for AM radio and the public's role in advocating for its preservation.
