please don't take this as an offense, but I'd just wanted to say that
your english is hard to understand sometimes.
It's good that you are describing the problems in multiple sentenses,
so one can get an overall view of it.

I don't think analog radio will be shut down on a determined day like
the analog terrestial television broadcasting may be, because many
radio stations are "smaller" and are doing the broadcasting on their
own and for a much smaller group of persons.

The reasons why AM-receivers are not beeing build into mp3-devices are
the other type of antenna (it's not that easy to "misuse" the
earphones cable as antenna) and the popularity of fm-stations.
FM has the big advantages of stereo and a better sound quality. The
fact that AM-stations do not have to be so powerfull as fm-stations to
be picked up in the same range does not matter as the fm-station can
crank up power with almost no limits in many countries at the moment.
