This radio is exactly as described. Finally--a simple am/fm radio--again!!!
I have needed a compact radio and found it at VCS

Radio in my workroom in our cellar.
I had an old radio that would not pick up certain channels while in our cellar, plus the volume control was very "IFFY." So I sent it to the recycle bin & purchased the one from you. It's perfect, simple, good sound, picks up all the channels & has a volume control that works. While I'm tinkering around down there I like to listen to Classic Music & what I hear from this very simple radio is clear, non-static, vibrant sound. I would recommend this radio to anyone who is looking for a simple, compact, battery backed up, plug in radio. For me, it's perfect. Thank you for a very good product.

Purchased for my husband as a surprise. We both thought it was a great product but, in the end, decided to return it as he did not feel he would get much use out of it. Have purchased from you before & will definitely again.

This radio model is perfect for those places usually without a radio set
I wanted a kitchen-area radio [for entertainment and information during food prep and meal times], but lack space and furniture to house a "standard"-sized radio set. This little number works beautifully in my kitchen; even distant stations [especially a desired university station located over 50 miles away] come in clearly and precisely (of course, depending upon tuning-in procedures). The compact radio-unit size still brings in good reception with minimal processing needed to make it "work" [eg dials are well-sized for people with large hands, such as myself; the dials furthermore are quiet and efficient and easy to tune, without there also being too many extra buttons/knobs to differentiate among]. I would like it if the volume and power knobs were in contrasting color schemes, to differentiate the functions when one is busy or is lacking time to attend to matters when urgency arises, such as when the phone or doorbell ring, for example -- but these are minor "annoyances".

This radio is junk. Very poorly made. It failed the first time I plugged it in. The tuning knob had no connection to the tuner or the dial indicator. No signal received.
When I first took it out of the box, it was so light I wondered if there was anything inside the plastic case.
Avoid this product!

Great simple radio
I have all the latest technology (iPad, iPhone, laptop, awesome bluetooth speaker) and a nice music collection but I wanted something simple to cart around the house while doing housework and while bathing. This is a solid purchase. Lightweight, good sound quality, and I like the old-fashioned simplicity. Turn the knob to tune - no messing around with annoying digital tuners. I like the classic face. I plan on using this for years to come. Happy.

Just what I was searching for
I purchased this radio for my mom. She had requested a radio that was simple to operate, with no cd player no other functions. She wanted a dial because she has stiffness in her hands and fingers and it is easier than pushing buttons. Your store was the ONLY place I could find such a product. My Mom was thrilled when she opened the box and saw the radio. It was exactly what she had wanted. It was easy to operate, and the perfect size for the kitchen. It went immediately to the kitchen where she can enjoy it the most. Thanks again for carrying hard to find items. Thanks for helping me get a radio that was easy for her to operate.

I love this radio
I have looked for years for a simple am/fm radio that I could carry around and I finally found it in your catalog. It has great clear sound and it lightweight. Batteries make it able to be carried around. I am extremely happy with this purchase and highly recommend it if this is something you are looking for. I love your catalog in the way that it carries so many items you can't find in stores.
