yeah--am antennas are pretty big--if you've ever seen them in one of those electronic project kits, they're nearly the size of your ring finger-- imagine how much bulk they'll add to today's tiny mp3 players. In fact, the only AM radio mp3 player i've found so far is on a sony minidisc--the only way they're able to accomplish this is by putting the AM antenna inside the remote for the player. They also tell you to keep it away from the minidisc unit itself to keep it away from the interference. The old CD players used to be able to accomplish this, of course, because of the space the size of the cd allowed it to have.
