Can someone please tell me how I can present my radio channels that are local to me? What buttons do I push to set the stations. Mine has old fashion tape deck.

I assume that the above is what your radio looks like.

AM/FM RADIO
The radio can be used with the ignition switch at ACC, ON or P.

Power Switch/Volume Control Knob
When this knob is turned clockwise, power is applied to the
radio, and the display indicates"AM" or "FM." Turning the
knob further increases the volume. If the display does not show
"AM" or "FM," the radio/cassette button is in the TAPE
mode. To play the radio, push this switch.

AM/FM Band Button
To receive FM signals, push this button. To set to AM, push
this button again. The"AM" or "FM" and "ST" (stereo signal
reception only) will be visible in the display. "ST" lights up
when an FM station in stereo is being received. As FM stereo
reception becomes weaker, special circuits in the radio gradually
blend the sound toward mono to maintain some sound quality,
even though the ST indicator remains ON. Stereo reception
is available only for FM stereo broadcasts, not for AM.

Preset Stations
You can preset six AM stations and six FM stations. AM and
FM stations are preset as follows:
1. Find the station you wish by the search lever (page 53).
2. Push the M button and the memory indicator "CH" will
blink in the display.
3. Push the CH (channel) button and select a channel you
wish, then push the M button again while the memory indicator
"CH" is blinking. The indicator will stop blinking
and the preset channel will be visible in the display. The
memory indicator will go off 7 seconds after the M button
was pushed, if the M button was not pushed again.
4. The memory is erased automatically if you tune and preset
a new AM or FM station.
