It surprising that Smooth Cheshire on MW hasn't been switched off.

I don't understand why Ofcom won't allow these frequencies to be used by, say, community groups who would be able to get an analogue berth alongside their online presence.

I suppose its the fact that most people that are 40 or under probably don't even know what AM radio is now, let alone possess a receiver that has it. Not to mention that FM broadcast antennas are far cheaper & less bulky than AM kit
