With the exception of the Sangean PR-D5 (sounds too muffled), I agree with RadioFlynn's radio recommendations. He writes:
A vintage GE SRII is maybe a good buy for a serious collector, but in my opinion it is too much to pay for sentiment. If you just want to listen to radio, there are lots of good choices. In the countertop-portable category, a CCRadio-EP is chock full o' analogue-sentimentality, and for $80 beats the GE for raw AM sensitivity and selectivity. Or go digital and get a Sangean PRD5 with RDS for just under $70. Want shortwave? A CCRadio-SW is probably also a better all-round radio than the GE and is $140.
