Thanks again to everyone who replied to my original post, especially to holl_ands for all of his research into radio reception in my area and to inglewood for his suggestion about a Sony Dream Machine.
I was able to buy a used Dream Machine C1iMK2. I connected the AM antenna and I was able to hear some AM stations from Toronto very clearly, as well as quite a few FM stations and of course my iPod music.
There was only one minor problem - it did not include a remote.
If anyone has a Sony C1iP remote they no longer need and if you are willing to sell it at a reasonable price, please let me know.
Once again, thanks for of your comments and advice, it was really appreciated.
