I originally bought this Panasonic RF-1080 on eBay a few years ago for $50 for nostalgic reasons. It was the first radio I had ever really liked, the model my parents took with us during our travels through Europe and Africa in 1973. Now I'm using it off the C batteries in the baby room and I'm very pleased with its AM/FM performance. I can't believe such a small radio receives AM so well, with no noise. Of course, it helps that I'm only running batteries, no AC. The good news? These are fairly common on eBay.
