Default AM radio by world region?

Iíve been looking online with little luck.
Any of you freighters have an online resource for radio freqs for AM stations around the world?
Any music will do, no particular flavor.

You can also search for shortwave RFI and BBC broadcasts on respective websites. There are some good country and jazz stations left,, especially in the rockies.

focus on the "Clear Channel" stations which are the 50kw power AM stations.

every major metro area (LA, Dallas, ATL) should have one. typically news/talk format tho.

I don't have it because I'm old and a techno dinosaur but it seems that 90% of my FO's have a noise canceling headset that will play music. And I bet it's static free and doesn't go out of range every 15-20 minutes. If your looking for news the BBC is still your best bet.
