Every car radio (to my knowledge) has their AM and FM presets separated and I would like to know why. I listen to a few FM stations and one AM station when I'm flipping through channels. It is such a hassle to switch over to AM before getting to that memorized station. Why can't the radio save the same set of 6 stations on the same set of presets regardless of AM or FM? Haven't we advanced as a race to be able to do this?
