Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.
Unfortunately, no, Carol, this model does not feature an am radio function, it supports FM reception only.
If you have trouble getting any fm stations it is possible to add an external antenna to it that may help with those channels.
If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service using the stars at the top of the page; hopefully I have earned 5 Stars. I also invite you to contact me directly with any future support needs at http://bit.ly/1QwLxGh and ask for Nathan.
Thank you, ***** ***** a nice day,
