The CCRadio from C.Crane is an incredible little radio that performs nearly as well as their famous full-size model. I’ve used their large CCRadio for about 15 years, and it’s the only radio I know that can pull in stations from LA during the day and San Francisco in the evening hours. Now the company has managed to put much of the same performance in a small pocket-sized version. It’s a beautifully engineered product that is easy and intuitive to use. It has a built-in speaker, 55 station presets, and AM, FM and weather bands. It also has a large LCD lighted display, sleep timer, clock, alarm, battery meter, signal meter, and removable belt clip. It even has its instructions printed in the battery compartment. 2-AA batteries provide 75 hours of earphone listening or 25 hrs. using the speaker. $60.
