Listing of AM Radio Stations for Traffic Reports

It's great that Satellite radio has traffic reports but not everyone has it. For those of us that don't, I thought it would be good to get a list of AM radio stations (readily available to all) of local traffic in the areas we travel through. I searched our forums and couldn't find anything there, if this is a dup I apologize.
While searching the web I found this site which is pretty good.
I'm going to print it out and keep it in all our vehicles. Hope this helps.

You know, when I was in the Louisville area, I got AM radio stations (in the Airstream) from Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago and someplace in Texas. Better signals at night than during the day. Was kind of strange hearing traffic and weather reports from all around the country. Best of all it was free.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

Years go, there used to be published a little thing called Jones Radio Guide. It listed every commercial radio station in the US in several ways.... by city and state, by where to find it on the dial, broadcasting hours and signal strength, format, all kinds of useful info all cross referenced. Including, if I remember rightly, news, weather, and traffic at (insert time here, such as five and thirty five past the hour) Alas, it is no longer available because it ws said, formatting changed too quickly for them to keep up!
This was a handly dandy little tool as I loved to DX in the winter as a kid! Oh the thrill of receiving a confirmation card from the station!
