The prison radio of choice (and I don't think they had another option) in Florida in the 80s and 90s was the GE Superadio (2 and later 3). Inmates would use the emergency lights to recharge the batteries.

I have no idea if this is relevant, but I had a Sangean WR2 that had a clear case - not sure if it was a for prisoners or not, but I thought it was cool all the same....

Adam, the clear case WR-2 is indeed for prisons.

The Sony SRF-39. I've owned three that were killed in AM reception when accidentally dropped to the floor.
