I have 3 or 4 of those old Radio Shack multi-band sets. Some models had AM, FM, and shortwave; some had AM, FM, police, weather, etc. My best performing one is the worst-looking--it has some holes in the cabinet!

All have at least good reception and sound, although not in the same class as the vintage Sonys, Panasonics, Zeniths, et al.

Witness also the well-reputed prodigious AM Dxing capacity of the Sony ICF-S10MK2.

I just got a AM-only Panasonic R-1551 on eBay with a large (6") good quality ferrite bar. It's blowing away almost everything else I have for AM performance. Also, the Tecsun R-308 is right up there with it but not quite.
