I had one of these for a couple of years. The volume control started to get scratchy, probably just needed a cleaning. I used it in the office, left it in the break room and it wandered off. (To be fair, usually the stuff we leave on the tables there is fair game, although I didn't leave this radio on the tables.) It's a decent little transistor radio with the level of performance you'd expect from an old-time transistor, except it gets FM too.
When I bought it I got a package of four Kodak AAs with it- the only Kodak brand batteries I ever bought. It used two. I must have used it for a half hour to an hour a day for two years, and it never did use up that first pair of batteries.

I bought this radio as my simple dependable emergency radio. With two AA lithium batteries inserted & four spare batteries, it's good for over two months of solid use. With some ingenuity it can also use AAA batteries.

Thanks for there tip, Vial. A classic little gem, no frills, with sensitivity and selectivity that would put more expensive Sangeans to shame. And only 9 bucks yet!

I'm a bit addicted to these, I currently have two. I listen to one or the other every day. The similar Panasonic RF-P50 matches it for FM reception, but not AM.
